Culture Guide :: Nightmares & abnormal parties

December 13th 2013

FBi's Weekend Culture Guide

It’s hard to know what to do after work sometimes… when you’ve got The Z Factor and Please Date My Horribly Awkward Son doubling up on TV, how could you possibly consider heading back outside?! Luckily, we’re keeping our eyes out to bring you the best, brightest, and usually cheapest stuff on the Sydney arts and culture scene.

So 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 :: Re-live the strange dreams of someone else’s childhood

You know those dreams you have that feel like nightmares but sound strangely fun when you try to explain them? The first collaborative exhibition between artists Rosie Deacon and Wally McGregor is a bit like that. Dus Wunder Kinder combines monsters and fragments of body parts in a surreal refusal to let go of childhood fantasies.

WHAT: Wally McGregor & Rosie Deacon’ present  Das Wunder Kinder
WHERE: Mils Gallery, 15 Randle St Surry Hills
WHEN: Opening tonight 6pm, exhibition runs until December 28

Saturday :: Parergon at Alaska Projects

The first solo exhibition from Sydney based art director and graphic designer Elliott Bryce Foulkes is not one to miss.

WHEN: 1pm until 6pm saturday and sunday and it ends after sunday.
