Wild West: Animals in the Archives

Take an expedition through the mountains of government records and spot Western Australian wildlife.

  • Time(s):Weekdays 9.30 am - 4.30 pm
  • Venue:National Archives of Australia
  • Dates:Apr 7 - Sep 1

Details

  • Hosted By:National Archives of Australia
  • Ticket Price:Free
  • Type:Free
  • Other:Museum events,History

Description

Western Australian animals have been targeted as pests by locals and farmers. Some have been exploited for profit and hunted to near extinction. Native fauna have been celebrated as emblems and studied by scientists. They have been captured in photographs and in cages. The stories in this exhibition are found in records created by government departments, including the CSIRO, Department of Defence and ABC. They show how Western Australians have interacted with the state’s unique wildlife and highlight changing attitudes towards animals and the environment. Which animal was the target of a military campaign? What now beloved animal was dismissed as an annoying rodent? Why is there a whale tooth in the national archival collection? Grab your binoculars, get out your field guide and spot your favourite animals in this expedition to the wild west.

York

Set in and around an abandoned hospital in the township of York, on Ballardong Nyoongar country, this epic piece of truth-telling blends humour and horror to uncover the buried histories.

  • Dates:Jul 10 - Aug 1
  • Venue:Heath Ledger Theatre

Details

  • Ticket Price:Between $36 - $93
  • Type:Aboriginal Art & Events
  • Performing Arts:Theatre
  • Produced By:Black Swan State Theatre Company
  • Event Venue:State Theatre Centre of WA

Description

Slipping through time and genres, York unveils the pasts we invent and the pasts we fail to acknowledge. Inspired by 200 years of real accounts, this daring new work sheds light on how our stories are told – and who tells them. Neighbour, I’ve been having trouble sleeping. Perhaps it’s that we haven’t been here very long but… do you hear it? There’s a pulse. A voice. Underneath and around. I’ve stripped back the wall paper and lifted the carpet. I’ve pulled up the floorboards and stand with a sledgehammer above the foundations. The tension is climbing up the walls and through the beams. There’s something unsettled here. Something needing to be heard.

PICA: Love in Bright Landscapes

Love in Bright Landscapes explores the possibilities of contemporary art in contributing to these ongoing stories of identity, purpose, presence and place in the cities of Perth and Los Angeles.

  • Dates:Jul 27 - Oct 10
  • Venue:PICA Galleries

Details

  • Hosted By:PICA
  • Art Exhibitions:Other Visual Arts
  • Produced By:PICA: Perth Institute of Contemporary Art
  • Event Venue:PICA

Description

Love in Bright Landscapes takes its title from the name of a 1986 album by former, now cult, Perth band The Triffids – a group that has contributed much to the city’s narrative of wide open roads, treeless plains and the relentless heat of a long, dry Perth summer. But this evocation of love – and with it the possibilities and pitfalls of infatuation and romanticisation – in a landscape stretched out beneath an expansive bright sky, might equally apply to an understanding of Los Angeles: a city that itself has long been steeped in lore and myth. As such, this exhibition considers Perth and Los Angeles as comparative case studies, bringing together a selection of artworks made in reference to the characters, qualities and topographies of the two west coast cities. Despite their inherent differences – in industry, scale, population, politics, public perception and self-image – and the distinct independent cultures of each city, Perth and Los Angeles share several commonalties: from indigenous and colonial histories to natural resource booms, sprawling suburbia, car culture, blazing sunsets and seamy underbellies.

Description

Love is in the air in Athens – and it’s contagious. Besides the royal wedding, which is just days away, there are young lovers dreaming of enchanted futures together. Hermia and Lysander are besotted with one another, while Helena adores Demetrius. The only snag is that Demetrius loves Hermia - and he’s got Hermia’s father on his side. So nobody is happy. (Shakespeare wasn’t kidding when he said the course of true love never did run smooth.) Determined to be together, Hermia and Lysander meet in a moonlit forest, with plans to elope. Following hot on their heels is Demetrius, who in turn is pursued by a lovelorn Helena. But the young lovers are not alone in the forest. Nick Bottom and his hapless bunch of tradies have gathered to rehearse a play to be performed at the royal wedding. And, hidden from human eyes, a mischievous sprinkling of fairies are also in the forest that night. The three worlds collide in an explosion of comic confusion that throws the future of all the lovers into jeopardy.

  • Music:Classical,Concert Tours,Concerto
  • Produced By:Musica Viva
  • Event Venue:Perth Concert Hall

Description

Every so often a new work comes along that makes us all sit up and take notice, startled as we do so; Paul Dean’s concerto for cello and wind quintet is such a piece. It is gritty, lyrical, compelling, and in Trish Dean has a phenomenal advocate. She is well matched by Paul and the other members of Ensemble Q, a sharp-shooting group of renowned wind soloists in Brisbane, brought together out of the desire to create a collection of ‘exceptional players and wonderful people’.

This program demands much from each player, perfectly framed by the different ways in which composers since Beethoven have thought about wind instruments. It’s funny to think of the Ligeti and Barber works being composed within two years of each other, for they could not be more different – Barber an exponent of mid-century American lyricism, Ligeti an uncompromising modernist. They nonetheless rub shoulders most happily in this program, a snapshot of virtuosic wind writing.

PAUL DEAN CLARINET AND ARTISTIC DIRECTOR

Based on the true story of Tupaia, a Tahitian star navigator who sailed with James Cook on the Endeavour, this beautiful and haunting work explores the 1769 meeting of two master mariners, each from a vastly different place and culture, both proud of their knowledge and unwavering in their ambition.

 

The opera delves into the minds of these two navigators of genius and the gulf of belief that, despite their common love of the sea and thirst for exploration, stops them from finding their way into each other's world. Set sail on this journey and let the music lift you up to the stars.

 

Star Navigator is a new work composed by Tim Finn with Tahitian monologues by Celestine Vaite. Originally commissioned by West Australian Opera, New Zealand Opera and Victorian Opera and supported by the state government of Western Australia.

Works of art by local Noongar artists such as Revel Cooper (dec.), Sandra Hill, Dianne Jones and Shane Pickett (dec.) sit loud-and-proud among those by Richard Bell, Karla Dickens, Julie Dowling and Brian Robinson to name a few of the many stellar artists in the show.
