Visual Arts: Screen Space – Sue Ford

12 Oct – 13 Jan @ Art Gallery of WA ·
Presented by Art Gallery of WA ·

Part of Sue Ford’s iconic Time series 1962-1974 and her video work Faces 1976-1996, is displayed in  Screen Space for the first time since acquisition.

Ford’s images of her subjects taken ten, twenty and thirty years apart were a key photographic and  a deeply feminist gesture which changed the way Australian photographers saw and conceptualised their work.

Ford’s career was marked by experimentation with photographic, film, print and multimedia techniques, all processes driven by her interest in what has been termed ‘the politics of representation’. The film Faces, one of the first films she made in the early 1970s, paralleled the photographic side-by-side method and included, once again, her friends and associates across two decades. For the 1996 part Ford collaborated with her son Ben.

Think Tank: tiny revolutions

15 Oct – 2 Nov @ Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts ·
Presented by pvi collective ·

An epic think and do tank of tiny proportions.

tiny revolutions is a public residency based project that responds to the current global feeling of helplessness by offering a creative response to some of the world’s major challenges. Members of the public are invited to submit a large issue that causes them concern, and then select a playful tactic with which to respond to the challenge.

The Millennium Project has identified 15 global challenges for humanity, and we have a variety of different ways to respond and bring attention to each one. The general public can then take part in a Think  tank session to brainstorm ways to respond to the challenges, or sign up to join an elite  tactical art response unit to DO some of the actions the think tank generates. Tackling big challenges starts with tiny revolutions.

Music: VAMP presented by Drug Aware

25 & 26 October @ The Edith Spiegeltent, Edith Cowan University, Mount Lawley ·
Presented by Jazmin Ealden and Sean Hayes ·

We invite you to join us for a musical experience that will broaden your musical horizons.  Whether you listen to classical orchestras, jazz, pop, rock or Eastern-European folk music,  his show will take the music you love, then spin it, twist it and fuse it to create an  extraordinary palette of musical worlds for you to discover and enjoy. VAMP is a concert project that aims to bridge the gap between musician and audience, musical genres, and the ways in which we enjoy concert experiences.

Directors Sean Hayes and Jazmin Ealden have devised the show as part of a creative goal  to open the door for audiences of classical music to experience music that falls into the medium they are familiar with, in a more relaxed atmosphere. Featuring an eclectic mix of musical styles from contemporary classical to Klezmer, VAMP presents music that everyone will enjoy, in an audience-focused format.

The Edith Spiegeltent, Between Buildings 1 and 5, Edith Cowan University, 2 Bradford St, Mount Lawley WA 6050.
