Description

Between April 6 and 18, the festival invites you to monolithic performances within a surround sound speaker array, basement shows traversing experimental theatre, avant-garde metal and free jazz, oddball parties and folk shows, and that’s not even half of it. An Ocean of Ears opens the festival on Tuesday April 6 with sound bubbling and fizzing through the Old Customs House in Walyalup/Fremantle with works by artists based between the Philippines, Los Angeles and across Australia. On April 7, an absurdist film with a challenging provocation. Live performance enters the fray on Thursday April 8, while a dance collaboration interact with the impressive and immersive speaker system. On Friday April 9, listen to Dryandra Woodland, and head on down to Serf Punk at The Bird to hear musique concrete, dance and medieval music collide in a strange revelry. Saturday April 10 offers artist talks, with a chance to dig deep into the peculiar minds of a handful of festival artists. The Rechabite is the venue of choice for the festival’s second week. Upstairs in the Hall, on Wednesday April 14, WAM-nominated songwriting wunderkind Nika Mo launches a new album on Tone List featuring a nine-piece band that smashes improvised music and avant-garde folk together in a sticky mess. On Friday April 16, ambient music, avant-garde metal, noise and experimental theatre co-exist. The festival closes with a cocoon-like experience in the intimacy of Backlot Cinemas,

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.

Description

This exhibition attempts to showcase works of art that reflect the depth of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art and culture, with other aspects of the Aboriginal condition. As a result, radical observations about the ups and downs of life will, at times, weave in and out of stories about Country. Equally, across the show, visitors will encounter passages of serenity, corridors of tradition, and trails that speak to the upheavals experienced by generations of Indigenous people. Balancing Act features the work of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists living and working across the State and 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.

Description

In the here and now, First Peoples and People of Colour find themselves simultaneously navigating a global health crisis and a historic moment of global awareness of systemic racism and the continued oppression of communities based on race and colour. For many, this is the moment to gather, to make collective voices heard, to be highly visible, to show resilience and resistance. For First Peoples, the act of coming together is integral to individual and collective selfhood. In gathering, the very fabric of our identities is formed, our place in the world is determined and decisions around our futures are forged. Recent times have reminded us how important contact with each other is to our wellbeing while asking us to rethink the ways that we gather and share time and space. While ‘the gathering’ does not seek to document the pandemic, or the uprising of the anti-racism movement globally, it is a response to these events.

Sonya distils the experience of the immensity of this vision of star-filled night skies in her paintings. The dominating stories of the Milky Way and Yalibirri, the Emu in the Sky reflect Aboriginal star knowledge that transcends Australia.
