Program 19-22 Arts Friday on Eastside Radio

COMA contemporary art space present a group exhibition that bridges their two galleries in Darlinghurst and Chippendale. The Throat of the Snake, centres around mortality and resistance and living an enigmatic opposition to disappearing. Founder of COMA, and the curator of the exhibition Sotiris Sotitiou, provides insight. Lara Merrett works with an expanded field of painting, with as deep an understanding of the interplays of colour as those of surface in works of both intimate and monumental scale. By my side, walking is an experimental installation created in collaboration with Cave Urban and is her solo debut at Sullivan + Strumpf. Story Week is an annual spoken word performance festival organised by Word Travels. First Person Voice, questions sovereignty self-determination and First Nations people controlling their own narratives. Featured is Sydney based Indigenous hip hop and R’n’B artist Kootsie Don, who gives us a little of her story.

Arts Friday acknowledge the custodians of the Gadigal lands from which the program has been produced and broadcasts from at Eastside Radio.

Produced and presented by Angela Stretch.
