I KNOW MY COUNTRY

Artitja brings remote Australian Indigenous art with new exhibition I KNOW MY COUNTRY

  • Dates:Mar 14-15 ; Mar 18-22 ; Mar 25-29 ; Apr 1-5
  • Time(s):10am - 4pm
  • Venue:Earlywork

Details

  • Hosted By:Artitja Fine Art Gallery
  • Venue Address:330 South Terrace, South Fremantle
  • Ticket Price:Free
  • Type:Aboriginal Art & Events,Art Exhibitions,Free

Description

UPDATE 

There is good news. The exhibition can be seen in its entirety through the windows of the gallery and we are just two minutes away.  If there is a particular work you are interested in we can be contacted on 0418 900 954.

If you would rather visit the exhibition online, and have interest in particular works on the site, please do call or send us an email  and we can send high resolution images of paintings and accompanying information.
 
We believe it is even more important at this time to support Aboriginal artists and their art centres for whom the sale of art is a vital source of income, and we will continue to do what we can to assist with continuity of sales, and look forward to your continued support and enquiries.

DESCRIPTION

As locals we know distance is involved if we want to travel inland. Think remote Australia and communities such as Pukayiyirna on the Canning Stock Route, or Kulyakartu in the Martu homelands near Percival Lakes in the northern Great Sandy Desert, and we’re looking at travelling in excess of 1500kms from Perth to get there. And that’s just within WA.

Artitja Fine Art Gallery is bringing those places and their stories to South Fremantle through striking imagery in their forthcoming exhibition I KNOW MY COUNTRY which opens on 13th March.

Add locations Puntawarri, east of Jigalong; Tjukurla in the Gibson desert almost 2000kms away; head north east into the Tanami desert, then south to the tiny community of Kalka in the Pitjantjatjara lands near the WA/NT/SA border. All very remote and not so accessible.

Over twenty artists from eight remote Aboriginal art centre communities feature in this energetic, bold selection of paintings which incorporate profound knowledge of country by the artists.

From the Producers that brought you the hugely successful [roduction shows Roy Orbison & The Everly Brothers & Elvis If I Can Dream now have the pleasure in inviting you to come and relive the magic and the magical hits of superstar Neil Diamond in a two hour concert experience.

Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame and Grammy Award Winner Neil Diamond is a phenomenon who gives truly special and personal shows that legions of fans return to see again and again. A style that transcends music fads by consistently touching people of all ages and interests. The personal and magical interaction Diamond has on stage with an audience is legendary, breaking all box office records wherever he performs.

This is your opportunity to experience that same spontaneous display of energy and sensuality with the superb talents of Internationally Renowned Peter Byrne and his Award Winning International Production “50 Years On – Neil Diamond Greatest Hits Tribute Tour” a show performing Neil Diamond’s greatest hits spanning over three decades, in an uncanny portrayal that has to be seen to be believed.

Come and hear all the great hits such as – Sweet Caroline, Song Sung Blue, I am I Said, Cherry Cherry, Beautiful Noise, Cracklin Rosie, Crunchy Cranola Suite, Holly Holy, Solitary Man & many many more.

Music Legend Neil Diamond has retired from touring due to Parkinson’s Disease but Internationally Renowned Peter Byrne continues to celebrate The Life The Legacy & all The Magical Hits of Superstar Neil Diamond.

Peter Byrne’s capacity to recreate Neil Diamond to a standard which impressed Diamond’s pianist on his last Australian tour says it all. Tom Hensley gave Peter a resounding nod of approval after seeing his Diamond tribute.

Irishman Byrne’s singing voice is eerie in its likeness to the megastar and providing the impetus for Byrne’s performance is a relentless pursuit to raise his Diamond act to a level that the man himself would endorse.

“It remains to be seen if Byrne, once reaches perfection strives to out-do his idol, however, the day I see a better Diamond, will be the day the man himself appears on stage” (Adrian Revere…The Mercury)

  • Music:Classical

Description

Music’s ability to lift us from despair or deep pain, or at least express our response to spiritual and physical wellness, are neither new nor new age, as 12th-century composer and healer Hildegard von Bingen well understood. English violinist Hugo Ticciati, who will direct this program of meditative but emotionally charged music in his Australian debut, experienced these qualities and “the interconnectedness of everything” as he sought ways to alleviate physical pain so severe it would force him to stop playing. Exploring such responses to life-changing upheavals, Latvian composer Peteris Vasks’ neo-spiritual Lonely Angel was written as a meditation on Mother Earth and redemption. Beethoven’s String Quartet in A minor, a hymn of thanksgiving that begins as a slow prayer before becoming jubilant and ecstatic, emerged from Beethoven’s recovery from a serious illness.

An even greater blow to Beethoven, the realisation of inevitable early deafness, saw his utter despair and futility expressed in the unsent letter of farewell known as the Heiligenstadt Testament. Australian Brett Dean’s Testament draws inspiration from this writing, capturing the fluctuations of hesitancy and passion, and the search for clarity, for healing, in this “wretched despair”.

Description

crtive mgmt. & Select Music presents SLY WITHERS and special guests The Lazy Susans and Semantics, on tour nationally this May & June.

To coincide with the release of ‘Explode Into View,’ the first single from their forthcoming new album, Sly Withers has announced they’ll be embarking on a national tour this May and June, starting in Hobart and working their way around capital cities and regional centres across the country. Tickets are on sale now from www.slywithers.com

On their breakout 2019 EP, Gravis, and particularly its killer single ‘Lately’ feat. Carla Geneve, Sly Withers showed that they had tremendous potential to perhaps break free of the confines of the Australian punk and indie rock scene they were raised on, and make a name for themselves as their own unique entity. ‘Explode Into View’ is the fulfilment of that and then some.

Nothing between then and now has changed in the band’s make-up. Same four members – Mata (guitar / vox), Sam Blitvich (guitar / vox), Joel Neubecker (drums) and Shea Moriarty (bass) – using the same producer as Gravis (Matthew Templeman at his studio in Mount Hawthorn), but now they possess not only another hard year on the road of shows under their belts (including major sets at Falls Festival and supporting the likes of Amy Shark and Slowly Slowly), and a self-belief that can only be built on the back of hard work and a camaraderie forged across sticky floors and tour vans. The result is a towering sound that is much, much greater than the sum of its parts, yet reflects the depth of the emotional core of the band and the love they share for the music they make together.

We acknowledge that these events are taking place on stolen land. We acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded and pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging. Always was, always will be Aboriginal land.

Description

Celebrated US gothic-rock/folk/doom-metal luminary CHELSEA WOLFE has announced her first full tour of Australia since 2012, scheduled for June this year.

Following her first ever New Zealand tour with shows in Auckland & Wellington, Chelsea Wolfe will bring her visceral, vivid live performance to Adelaide, Perth, Melbourne, Sydney & Brisbane.

Wolfe will tour with her four-piece band, as well as bringing along Sargent House labelmate EMMA RUTH RUNDLE performing solo as support.

Chelsea Wolfe will perform a career-spanning set on this tour, including songs from her new album “Birth of Violence” released last September.

Chelsea Wolfe last played in Australia in 2016 for Tasmania’s Dark Mofo event, with her last full national tour back in 2012.

Since then, she has continued to earn a cult following worldwide, propelling her previous albums ‘Hiss Spun’ (2017) & ‘Abyss’ (2015) onto the Billboard 200 albums chart and further critical acclaim.

From Roskilde Festival to selling out clubs worldwide, Chelsea Wolfe’s versatility as a performer and songwriter is on full display at her live performances, whether solo or with her band.

2020 will mark 10 years since her debut ‘The Grime and The Glow’ was released, sparking a career that has influenced and inspired fans across continents to appreciate life in both its darkness and light.

‘Birth of Violence’ was written and recorded in solitude at home in Northern California. Following the brooding heaviness of ‘Hiss Spun’, Wolfe chose to return to her folk roots. These songs describe ‘an internal awakening of feminine energy, a connection to the maternal spirit of the Earth and a defiant stance against the destructive and controlling forces of a greedy and hostile patriarchy.’

Opening track ‘The Mother Road’ quickly establishes this sound: simultaneously unnerving and soothing. Whilst critical reviews have been positive, it’s perhaps the feedback from her fans that best describes the power and allure of Chelsea Wolfe in its simplest form:

‘After the doomy heaviness of Hiss Spun, another acoustic record – she seriously can nail it in any style’

‘Her heavier, doomy records got me into her music, but her acoustic material is completely entrancing.’

‘I cannot believe I am lucky enough to be alive in a time where Chelsea Wolfe exists’

Chelsea Wolfe will be joined at all shows on this tour by singer songwriter EMMA RUTH RUNDLE. The curator of this year’s Roadburn Festival, Emma Ruth Rundle is revered for her powerful and evocative songwriting as much as her artistic flair and versatility. In addition to her work with renowned groups RED SPAROWES, MARRIAGES & THE NOCTURNES, Emma has released five solo records, most recently 2018’s ‘On Dark Horses.’ Her passionate live performances are renowned as much as her songcraft and Australian & Kiwi fans will finally get to experience her live performances for the first time ever this June.

Description

Leo Frank’s trial and conviction is a shocking miscarriage of justice that leads to tragedy. Based on true events, the Tony-award-winning Parade is not your average feel-good musical. Yet this powerful tale of racism and false patriotism, set to a striking score that ranges from soaring anthems to ragtime and blues, is a timely reminder of the ugly consequences of ignorance and fear.
