ARTS WEDNESDAY 23 NOVEMBER 2011
At about 10:40 am I will be very happy to say hello again to Ed Lippmann, returning for another 6-part series of Sydney By Design. In this series, Ed wants to discuss Sydney as it could be. It is a subject we have talked about before, but this time his plan is to include the opinions of high-profile guests – much as we did for our last series on Barangaroo.
At 11:00 am I will have a conversation with 2 special guests: Georgia Wallace Crabbe and Flavia Fontes. curators of a new exhibition opening on Friday at Customs House. Called Connections, it explores the connections between Brazil and Australia across time and across disciplines. For example, did you know that the First Fleet stopped at Brazil on its way to Sydney, bringing with it Brazilian plants? It is a conversation I am anticipating with pleasure!
No marks for guessing what music I’ll be playing – Brazilian!
As always I look forward to your company.
