Claire Lambe: Mother Holding Something Horrific

Saturday 8th April - Sunday 25th June @ ACCA, Southbank

In this major exhibition of newly commissioned work, the artist’s most ambitious project to date, Claire Lambe employs sculpture, photography, biography and theatrical mise-en-scène to create intimate and intense psychological spaces in an ambitious attempt to describe the human condition in its cruel reality and horrifying glory.

Known for her strange and often abject sculptural forms, Claire Lambe’s work explores psychological narratives of gender, sexuality, identity and class, leading to anxious objects full of revelatory and emancipatory potential. In a deeply subjective and sometimes transgressive practice of psychodrama and catharsis, Melbourne-based and English-born Lambe draws upon a rich bank of personal history and reference material as a starting point for her investigation into the ambiguity between memory and experience, reality and re-enactment.

Claire Lambe: Mother Holding Something Horrific will charge ACCA’s extensive gallery spaces with a series of dramatic installations that are at once uncanny, anarchic and full of life and libido. The installation will be further enlivened by an occasional series of performances by contemporary dancer and choreographer Atlanta Eke which will develop in the gallery space over the course of the exhibition, continuing an ongoing collaboration between the two artists.

Australian Centre for Contemporary Art
111 Sturt Street, Southbank VIC 3006, Melbourne, Australia
10 am–5 pm Tuesday to Friday; 11 am–5 pm weekends and public holidays, Monday by appointment.

1984 by George Orwell

Wednesday 31st May - Saturday 10th June @ Comedy Theatre

Direct from London’s West End, the award-winning stage adaptation of Orwell’s 1984 comes to Melbourne with a terrifying Room 101 and paranoia-inducing messages delivered on a lo-fi cracking screen.

You can think a thought, start a diary or fall in love, but Big Brother is always watching, reminding us that…

“The news is all lies anyway…
Not a word of it could ever be proved or disproved…
You are rotting away. You are falling to pieces. What are you? A bag of filth.”

- George Orwell, 1984

To understand 2017… you have to see 1984.

***** ‘Crushingly powerful stuff’ - Time Out London
***** A chilling, ingenious 101 minutes’ - The Times, UK
***** “Never lets the audience off the hook.” - The Guardian (UK)

slate culture gabfest live in melbourne

Slate Culture Gabfest, Live in Melbourne

Wednesday 31st May @ Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre

The Slate Culture Gabfest is both a stalwart and a pioneer of American podcasting, and one of its most consistent successes. For almost a decade, the show’s fizzing erudition has been collecting fans with its precise, entertaining and illuminating discussions of culture – high, low, and other – and its social and political implications.

Each week, hosts (and Slate staff critics/editors) Stephen Metcalf, Dana Stevens and Julia Turner choose three topics to discuss, sometimes joined by an insightful guest. Their quick-witted (and typically self-effacing) rapport underpins lively, substantial arguments about their chosen texts. They’re funny. They disagree, sometimes furiously. But whether they’re elevating or eviscerating each other’s points, their love of culture – and awareness of how inescapable it is, for what it says about how we live and understand our lives – is a constant.

In Australia for the first time, and live in Melbourne, Turner, Stevens and Metcalf will record an episode in front of an audience, joined by indie rock artist Courtney Barnett. So, whether you’re into music or film, or premium or reality TV, or books, or theatre or longform essays – whatever your entertainments – come and talk it out.
