Hello!

saturday 26 may 2012

Day 8 of NWF 2012. Welcome to the final weekend! And if you think it's winding down...think again. This weekend will be firing until the very last minute. With incredible shows to see all over town, free events at Wake Up, sunset celebrations and a huge closing party at Queen Victoria Market, this will be two days to remember.

In today's Pegboard, we help you plan it all out - with news about our closing party Fresh Produce, picks for shows on this weekend and the list of free shows on today including your final chance to see Bellowing Echoes at Gertrude Contemporary.

Everything Else

text camper PICK: bone library

 

Text Camper Naomi Gall says...

"Bone Library is more than simply an artwork- it's an experience. You see the work, you smell the work and you hear the artist engraving the names of 'extinct' Indigenous languages into the bone. Sarah-Jane Norman's work is a moving memorial to Indigenous culture. "

Bone Library now showing until 27 May

staff pick: food for thought

 

NW Artistic Program Manager Serena says...

"Are you a feminist? Artist run initiative Level want to know. Through their dinner parties, day time talks, reading room and installation (all housed at Footscray Community Arts Centre) Level generate burning questions that cut to the core of female experience, but not without a decent dose of humour too - check out the banners that celebrate Oprah's va jay-jay and the joy of pubes. Food For Thought is a playful yet provocative take on contemporary feminism in all its forms."

Food for Thought now showing until 27 May

Staff pick: the exchange program 2

 

NW Festival Assistant Mathilde says...

"Dewey Dell are like a kid's nightmare - strange but not scary and full of meanings that you can't really explain. Grave is all about oppressed bodies fighting against gravity. It's dark, loud and beautiful. Justin Shoulder's Pinky is just as strange - the metamorphosis of a pink and sparkling androgyny to a dark, elegant and beautiful creature. "

The Exchange Program 2 now showing until 27 May
