Program 25-23 Arts Friday on Eastside Radio

Sydney WorldPride leads us into the Festival with a suite of exhibitions including Word Made Flesh, a major immersive installation at Carriageworks, by Melbourne artist Paul Yore. Yore has composed makeshift structures, mixed media sculpture and found objects, collage and assemblage, paintings, video, and pulsating sound and light and he lights us up with his thoughts. Death: and becoming is the latest exhibition at the Bearded Tit, in Redfern. Poet Imbar Amira Nassi has his curatorial debut and shares an excerpt of the exhibition description along with a poem. We also hear from exhibiting artists: Annie Parnell, Antony Youssef and Black. Passage is a new art gallery located in the Prince Trade Centre in Haymarket. The opening exhibition Open Ceremony, by Eduardo Wolfe-Alegria is a body of work that interprets his memories and encounters through a lens of surrealism. Marco Rinaldi, Director and the exhibiting artist Eduardo tell us more. The Last Picture Show is the final exhibition at Duck Rabbit, which is set to close its doors after a successful exhibitive program that has been operating since the 2000s. Hugh Ramage is an artist, painter, sculptor and the founder of Duck Rabbit, and he talks us through a snapshot of the journey.

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