Culture Guide :: Nightmares & abnormal parties
December 13th 2013
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.
Friday :: Party with Intersect Arts
The brainchild of a collective of artists whose aim was to create the ultimate creative space, Intersect Art is Sydney’s newest space offering public accessible workshops, monthly exhibitions, artists talks and affordable studio space.
Check them out tonight and have a drink and feed supplied by the delighfully healthy Iku in their honour. They’ll be discussing their plans for the next 6 months alongside live painting and timelapse and an exhibition by 17 of their resident artists.
WHAT: Intersect Arts official launch party & exhibition
WHERE: 277 Bourke St, Darlinghurst
WHEN: Tonight 6-9pm
HOW MUCH: Free
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. In this exhibit of typographic works, Foulkes takes text and graphic materials out of their original contexts and reworks them into the gallery space, challenging our natural perceptions of graphics, language and artistic spaces.
WHAT: Parergon by Elliott Bryce Foulkes
WHERE: Alaska projects, Level 2 Kings Cross car park, 9A Elizabeth Bay Rd Kings Cross
WHEN: 1pm until 6pm saturday and sunday and it ends after sunday.
HOW MUCH: Free
Saturday: House music meets the ocean
Dance music in abnormal locations. That’s the tagline for House on the Rocks, the event run by Locus Cadre who have returned to our shores with a summer series of parties that combine house music and the ocean.
Sunday: Wrap yaself up
Yelp Shops Local are doing great things supporting local Sydney businesses by encouraging us to shop local this Chrissie and to make it even easier they’re throwing a Wrap Up event complete with beers and wine. You can wrap your own presents, make D.I.Y Christmas cards, get your photo taken as Santa on an inflatable couch and even get some last-minute gifts from The Wild Ones Market and Life Or Stage jewellery pop up stalls.
