Visual Arts: STALA CONTEMPORARY: ‘Synchronicities’ exhibition – Sue Leeming & Britt Mikkelsen

13 Nov – 6 Dec @ STALA Contemporary Art Gallery, West Perth ·
Presented by STALA CONTEMPORARY ·

WA artists Sue Leeming and Britt Mikkelsen allow process and nature to guide their practice creating moments of synergy in an exhibition of paintings and sculptures that belie their obvious differences. These synchronicities are the still small voice that guide us as we make sense of the nonsensical in a broken world.

Visual Arts: Don’t Stare at the Sun/ for Too Long

29 Nov – 19 Dec @ PS Art Space, Fremantle ·
Presented by Amy Perejuan-Capone ·

New work by Amy Perejuan-Capone in collaboration with her dad Greg Perejuan. This major project explores communication and bravery as elemental to resilience. In collaboration with her dad, an amateur aviator since he was 16, Amy has built a 1:1 scale facsimile of his ultralight aircraft. The grand gesture is an examination of complicated personal histories, the aircraft symbolising critical points of disruption and connection as well as an overarching and inherited drive for adventure that forms a basis for hope.

Opening: Friday 29 Nov, 6.30pm – 8:30pm
Exhibition: 30 Nov-19 Dec 2019
Gallery Open: Tue-Sat 10am-4pm
Closing Event/extended gallery hours: Thur 19 Dec, 5pm-8pm

Theatre: The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society’s production of A Christmas Carol

22 Nov – 7 Dec @ Stirling Theatre, Innaloo ·
Presented by Stirling Theatre ·

A dramatic massacre is about to occur at Stirling Theatre – but it’s not quite what you think. The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society’s production of A Christmas Carol is a comedy about the horrors of stage stuff-ups, bloopers and blunders. Everything that could go wrong,does go wrong, as the evening unfolds with missed cues, forgotten lines and collapsing scenery.

Written by David McGillvray and Walter Zerlin Jnr, it comes from a series of plays about the fictional  Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society trying to put on a production. Each show is filtered through the society’s unique blend of misplaced enthusiasm, ego, inappropriate casting and extremely bad acting.

The first of the series debuted at the 1976 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Visual Arts: Measure / Delirium

14 – 22 November @ Spectrum Project Space, ECU, Mount Lawley  ·
Presented by Nikki Lundy and Alex Spremberg ·

Two solo exhibitions by School of Arts and Humanities Painting AIR 2019 Award winners.

Nikki Lundy – Measure
With thoughts relating to nostalgia of place and space, Measure hopes to acknowledge the past  inhabitants and physical happenings of the ECU studios and Spectrum Spaces. Lundy’s practice involves an ongoing exploration and affinity for process, materiality and spatial relationships. Lundy uses found, construction, non-art and repurposed materials to formulate an experience of space, architecture and the physical body.

Alex Spremberg – Delirium
This new body of works blends images and texts from the commercial sphere with reproductions of  historical artworks that have no inherent relationship to the advertising of products. The rational is confronted by the irrational and the tensions that results are explored in this exhibition.

The exhibitions open at 6pm on 14 November.
