Culture Guide :: Art, Bikies & Eurotrash
May 9th 2014
When the lure of comfortable pants and reality TV threatens to maroon you on the shores of mediocrity, FBi’s culture guide has got you sorted…
FRIDAY : Faire Isle opening
‘Faire Isle’ showcases the work of 30 different artists experimenting with space and practice over a 5 week period. Check it out over the weekend and catch a discussion at the closing event on Sunday.
WHAT: Faire Isle exhibition
WHERE: Articulate Project Space, 497 Paramatta Rd Leichhardt
WHEN: Launching tonight 6-8pm. Gallery open 11am – 5pm Saturday and Sunday. Closing event discussion Sunday 2-4pm.
HOW MUCH: FREE
WEEKEND: Agency of Inanimate Objects
If the world suddenly ended, what materials and objects would remain in the future to tell of our existence? Izabella Pluta’s current solo show examines the idea of temporality through questioning whether objects are remarkable or obsolete.
SATURDAY: Throttle Roll
The Vic on the Park is being transformed into a rockabilly bikie bar, with the biggest collection of Cafe Racers, Bobbers, classic and custom motorbikes on display alongside music from Pat Capocci, The Tequila Twins, the Big Blind Ray Trio and Papa Pilko and the Binrats.
SUNDAY : Last day of Art Express
This weekend is your last chance to see the awesome work of HSC students collected from last year’s Visual Arts major works and to be blown away by the serious talent bubbling away inside these students.
SUNDAY :: Eurovision party
It’s back. That outrageously tacky, over the top, glittery talent quest on crack. You will either love or hate Eurovision, or not get it at all. Either way, the parties that go alongside it – like this one – are too much fun.
WHAT: Eurovision Party
WHERE: Oxford Art Factory, Darlinghurst
WHEN: Sunday. Mashup of songs from 5pm and grand finale from 7.30pm
HOW MUCH: $10 (but the first 50 to arrive in costume get in for free)
Why? Because Romania 2013. Check it:
