House music at your house 2020

Sydney Living Museums is delighted to launch an exciting new online program- House Music at Your House- inspired by the sheet music collection at Rouse Hill Estate. We've delved into the hundreds of popular songs that survive in the collection at Rouse Hill Estate in Sydney's north-west to bring you the top 20 hits of the 1840s and 50s - songs played across NSW- Australia and overseas.Every week until December visit the Sydney Living Museums website- to view a new musical score of a song enjoyed by the Rouse family and their friends- along with a video- a sound file or guitar chords. We've also asked a group of Sydney's leading musicians to share their interpretations of these popular hits from their homes.We invite you to make music with us bringing the music of the 19th century into the 21st century. Recreate these songs for the 2020s and make your own cover version of each week's song- turning music from 19th-century Rouse Hill House into music at your house in the 21st century. Share your version with us- and we'll share the best responses across our website and social media. Visit our website to find out how you can participate.House Music at Your House is supported by the City of Sydney.

Forensic Architecture- Cloud Studies 2020

Cloud Studies is the first solo exhibition in Australia by Forensic Architecture- a research agency comprised of architects- artists- filmmakers- journalists- scientists- lawyers and other specialists who undertake investigations into human rights abuses- state violence and environmental crimes around the world.Using the disciplinary tools of both architecture and forensics- Forensic Architecture have given rise to a new form of investigative practice that seeks to uncover- analyse and present evidence from the crimes of our recent past and consider the convergence of architecture- media- and violence.In Cloud Studies- Forensic Architecture contend with the interconnectedness of global atmospheres. The work brings together eight recent investigations under a single theme- toxic clouds. In a year of bushfire- pandemic and protest- where toxic clouds colonise the air we breathe and shape the way we connect- Cloud Studies presents evidence of perseverance and resistance.The exhibition is extended by related investigations and a publication- Responses to the Cloud- that explores the themes of Cloud Studies from a local context- with new writing by Joel Spring- Saba Bebawi- Jason De Santolo- Tom Melick- Nikki Lam- Thalia Anthony- Micaela Sahhar and curators Stella Rosa McDonald and Eleanor Zeichner.

Group & solo exhibitions at Gaffa Gallery: October-November 2020

Gallery 1: ORIENTATION : LANDSCAPE - Catherine Boardman- Margaret Dix- Nicola Dunbar & Alexandra Mills 'The urge to trap in two-dimensions- a piece of a place or the sensation it creates in us is strong and for centuries artists have pursued the representation of landscape in many media and formats.'  Gallery 2: Edge of Disquiet - Jacqui Driver 'Much of my work responds to my own experience of the unstable emotional states of grief- trauma- and anxiety- as well as dealing with the physical pain of chronic Rheumatoid Arthritis- I am inviting the audience to acknowledge spaces of discomfort and non-conformity.'Gallery 3: HEAD ON PHOTO FESTIVAL presents Apophony Lilium  Ben Blick-Hodge 'Following the linguistic concept of the same name- the Apophony series aims to explore a kind of visual intonation. Using a process of photographic capture and digital arrangement- for these works true lilies are faceted into structurally symmetrical wreathes. From the natural fall of light in multiple photographs- a coherent light source is then gathered to illuminate a form that hovers between idea and object- fabrication and documentation.'Gallery 4: DAILY RITUALS - Erin O'Brien 'As a freelance illustrator and designer- I am often constrained to the client's brief. Daily Rituals is my chance to think and draw freely every day with the influence of a single word prompt. An opportunity to do something just for me. No client notes or edits- just the joy of putting pen to paper and taking a drawing from start to finish in the space of 20 minutes. Daily Rituals is an exercise in not overthinking it- and in making art more accessible to myself and to others. Just 366 small- manageable- daily goals.'Covid-19 Safe Guidelines As a result of Covid-19 & social distancing- we will not hold our typical opening night on Thursday's fortnightly. However- we will be extending our hours on Saturday from 10am - 5pm.
