This year’s Head On Photo Festival, a celebration of photography exhibited in various locations across Sydney, presents a range of poignant photographic surveys dealing with diverse subjects, including a plethora of topical social issues.

the school for scandal: review

Alison Maher
No comments

I had never heard of the play The School for Scandal before, on now at the New Theatre in Newtown, until the 30th of May, but I was bursting to see it nonetheless. Not because I’m a broke-ass student who was offered a free ticket. Not because eating lethal amounts of chocolate had been my only…

exhibition review: pat brassington

Harriet McInerney
No comments

    Pat Brassington creates a miasma of unusual images, sometimes carnivalesque or puppet-like and at other times stretched or contorted human forms. There is always a hint of lusciousness, or a just-out-of-reach intimacy in these representations of beings and ideas that are more complex than a single image can hold. The artist’s stretched and…

Jo Williams

I knew there was a reason I packed my hiking boots. After my three week fling with Sydney, I felt like I needed to get out of the city. Luckily, for a mere $8 you can jump on a two-hour train journey to the Blue Mountains. As soon as I touched down in Sydney I…

Claire Capel-Stanley
No comments

  I stand shivering lightly in my black singlet and stretchy black pants, flexing each knee again and again, standing on tiptoe to combat the air which has only just turned cold. I am with a group of others, and we arrange ourselves in a line at the door. ‘Ok, who wants what?’ our leader…

  Leni Ponifasio and his company MAU return to Carriageworks with their Australian premiere of yet another thought provoking work,  Stones in Her Mouth. Like MAU’s 2012 production of Birds With Skymirrors, which explored our relationship with the world in a time of climate change, Stones in Her Mouth is a similarly provocative work. Through the…

exhibition review: life captured

Rhiannon Tuffield-Skone
One comment

  As human beings, we are able to feel and make sense of the world around us. We know what it is to experience joy and freedom and pain, and, most importantly, sympathy or empathy when we witness suffering. Yet when it comes to animal suffering, many of us are indifferent or can’t properly connect…

art review: THIS IS BARBARA CLEVELAND

Lauren Strickland
No comments

You walk in through the cavernous foyer, conscious of the sound of your footsteps and the echo they make. The door, with the number 19 lettered across it, is open. Looking in down a short corridor, there are exposed concrete walls and a sign with crooked lettering. You walk down the corridor and are steered…
