Community Billboard 6th June-12th June
This weekly community billboard is proudly sponsored by the City of Sydney’s Plan for the
future – Sydney 2030 – making our city more green, global and connected.
Award winning artist Elefteria Vlavianos was born in Zimbabwe of mixed Armenian and Greek heritage. Her works draw on her multicultural heritage to investigate connection to place, culture and identity.
The paintings presented in Re-Articulation build on a series of works titled Poetic Structure, which results from an ongoing investigation into how painting facilitates the visual translation of displaced Armenian cultural aesthetic into a contemporary context. The heart of this project is an attempt to make visual that which has been rendered silent.
This show is at the 541 Art space in Kent street until June 24th.
Black Is The New White.
Brought to you by the Sydney Theatre Company, 'Black Is The New White' is a satirical feast and quriky romantic comedy. Written by the in demand Nakkiah Lui, she tells the story of Charlotte Gibson, a lawyer on the up. She won a landmark Native Title case, she’s making her parents proud, she could have her own TV show tomorrow. But she has other ideas. First of all, it’s Christmas. Second of all, she’s in love.
However, fiancé, Francis Smith, has the whitest name in the world and is an unemployed experimental classical composer. This is not what her family expected.
A must see!
If you were left cold and unsatisfied at Guy Richie's take on medieval times and are in need of some semblance of a GOT fix, head to Bondi archery. Here you can fire of arrows to your hearts content in the beautiful surrounds of Bondi beach... all the while imagining your storming the shores of Kings Landing!
On every Sunday.
