JOIN CASULA POWERHOUSE ARTS CENTRE FOR THE LAUNCH OF HI VIS AND FRE$H PAIR, TWO NEW EXHIBITIONS EXPLORING CONTROL, AND THE COMPLEX POLITICS OF GETTING DRESSED AND FEELING FABULOUS.
Event time: 1 February 2020, 2 - 4pm (Live Performance by Kilia Tipa, 3pm)
Exhibition dates: 1 February - 15 March 2020
Exhibition: HI VIS
Artists include: Nicole Oliveria, Leila el Rayes, JD Reforma, Joan Ross, Matthew Stegh (Haus of Helmutti) Angela Tiatia and Kilia Tipa.
HI VIS explores dancing and dressing as fabulous forms of empowerment.
Each of the artists demonstrate control through the spectacle of dance and dress. By being irresistible to look at, the artists can control an onlooker’s attention and push them to engage a range of complex political ideas while still being entertaining to watch.
The artists and their artworks are fabulous, but they are also using these art forms because they create a necessary form of defence. Through being impossible to ignore, they create a defence against violence, a defence against forgetting troubling histories, and a defence against not being seen at all.
Exhibition: Fre$h Pair
Artist include Gillian Kayrooz and Kimberley Peel
Fre$h Pair investigates self-expression in youth culture through the phenomenon of sneakers. The exhibition documents individuals and communities who showcase the nuances of sneakers worn by Millennials and Generation Z.
Fre$h Pair speaks to critical themes of street culture and its influence on fashion and pop culture at large.
