thursday 5 july 2012


This week Melbourne enjoyed it's coldest day in seventeen years and boy did we feel it down to our bones here at the Arts House Meat Market! But holidays and warmer climes always help, so we came up with this genius plan:

- Head north to the sunny shores of Sydney to high five 2012 Festival artist Tiffany Singh and check out her breathtaking installation for the Biennale of Sydney
- Whilst there, also kowtow to fellow 2012 festival artists Nathan, Casey and Abdul who are in town showing their Artefacts from The Greater Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere
- Get back in time to see the Meat Market heat up for a season of Zoe Scoglio's show Shifting Ground

Then Artistic Program Manager Serena Bentley trumped us all by announcing she is jet setting off next week for a curatorial residency at Cemeti House in Yogyakarta conducting research and checking what's going on in Indonesia.

The moral of the story is there's some pretty hot stuff happening between Melbourne and a latitude 5° south of the equator right now.
