Program 30-23 Arts Friday on Eastside

Art Pharmacy is an art consultancy that implements creative visions and cultural projects in Australia, and are presenting a series of panel discussions. The third, Curate Your City stimulates conversation on the future of art projects in the public realm. Digital Strategist and Curator, Michelle Wang, provides insight. Just Not Australian presents work by Australian artists at the forefront of national debate and practice. This exhibition brings together 19 artists across generations and diverse cultural backgrounds to deal broadly with the origins and implications of contemporary Australian nationhood. The exhibition returns to Sydney after being on tour since 2020, on at the Museum of Sydney. Curator at Artspace, Talia Linz talks us through the premise and the impacts on Australian communities. Joan Cross works across a range of mediums, including drawing, painting, installations, sculpture, video, and virtual reality. Her work investigates the legacy of colonialism in Australia. I give you a mountain, is a video animation presented as part of Just Not Australian. Opening in May at the Woollahra Gallery at Redleaf is NATIVE DEITIES, an exhibition that gives homage to Australia’s unique natural landscape. Bruce Slorach marks 40 years since graduating from the Victorian College of Arts and commencing a creative career that would evolve over decades. He offers us a preview of the exhibition.

Produced and presented by Angela Stretch, the program participants acknowledge the custodians of the Gadigal lands from which the program has been produced and broadcasts from at Eastside Radio.
