Friday Fabulous Five

View Online Version


Titled in reference to a recipe passed down by her mother, 'Con la punta de los dedos' (with the tip of your fingers) is the first solo show at STATION for Venezuela-born, Sydney-based artist Nadia Hernández, on show from tomorrow until May 22. Remixing intimate vignettes of family life with ruminations on the current political, humanitarian and environmental crises in her home country, the artist's vibrant and energetic constructions entwine the trauma of loss with a desire to remember in a defiantly exuberant dance, effecting protest through the memorialisation of the everyday.
A belief in lifelong learning is the essence of the Sherman Centre for Culture and Ideas, so it's fitting that SCCI's return to live events is with a program built around education, assembling experts in the fields of fashion, art, film and architecture to share their professional experience with young people. Open to upper-primary, secondary and tertiary students, 'SCCI Stepping Stones' includes skills-based workshops, screenings, excursions and talks from a roll call of cultural leaders, including Oscar-winning producer Emile Sherman, architect William Smart, City of Sydney deputy mayor Jess Scully and artist Janet Laurence. Until June 30.
Housing visitors from elsewhere in your thoughts by Jonny Niesche is one of more than a dozen works by leading Australian artists that will be auctioned at 'Art with Heart' on April 29 at Eleven40 in Melbourne. Proceeds will go to children's hospice Very Special Kids, which provides 24-hour medical and nursing care to children with life-threatening illnesses while also offering support to their families. Book your ticket to the Champagne reception to bid on works from the likes of Brook Andrew, Tom Polo and Joanna Lamb while supporting a very special cause.
With the pages of her book Jungalow: Decorate Wild fairly exploding with joyful colour, pattern and lush greenery, author Justina Blakeney graphically illustrates her conviction that such vibrancy and no-holds-barred decorating promotes happiness. An avowed maximalist, she is also a master of hybrid style, inventing such mash-ups as Tropic-Talian and Turk-Xican, characterised by a boho ethos that cherry-picks the most striking and vibrant aspects of each genre to create imaginative and idiosyncratic looks.
