  • Peter Drew: Real Australian - Image

    Peter Drew: Real Australian

    What does it mean to be a ‘real Australian’ in an age of globalised citizenship? Individual and collective identity are now moderated by economic, political, religious and cultural influences. Adelaide-based artist, Peter Drew, was inspired by the second verse of Advance Australia Fair to consider the nation’s approach to multiculturalism.

    Delving into the archives of state and national cultural collections, Drew revitalises the histories of Australia’s enduring ethnic diversity during the era of White Australia policies. Reproducing official government photographs as screen printed posters, the aesthetics and techniques of his street art melds past and present.

    Peter Drew is a printmaker, street artist and filmmaker. After studying philosophy, psychology and art history at the University of Adelaide he completed a Master’s Degree at the Glasgow School of Art. Drew’s public art, although posted anonymously, has gained him notoriety. He was the winner of the 2016 Governor’s Multicultural Award and a finalist for Australian of the Year, 2016. His prints are held in state and national cultural collections, including Art Gallery of South Australia, the National Gallery of Australia and the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences. The most prominent display of his work can be seen on city streets and rural areas across Australia.Weekdays, 10am to 7pm

  • Blak Box - Image

    Blak Box

    Based on oral storytelling, silences and the spaces in between, deep listening is a First Peoples practice to develop respect and community building.

    The state-of-the-art Blak Box surround-sound space has been purposely designed by globally-renowned architect Kevin O’Brien. The harbourside pavilion will be filled with a powerful suite of newly commissioned sound works carefully curated by Daniel Browning, presenter of Awaye! on ABC RN. The works bring together a moving range of contemporary First Peoples voices to respond to the past, present and future of the Barangaroo site.

    The premiere of Blak Box offers audiences a vantage point for a wider exploration of the First People’s relationship with their waters. This is shared through that most compelling and fleeting artefact of human consciousness – sound. The Urban Theatre Projects Blak Box program is titled humechochorus (hum echo chorus) inspired by the history of the Barangaroo headland, comprising interviews, original music and spoken word performances.

    Supported by Barangaroo Development Authority.

    There is a mix of 30 minute and 60 minute sessions.
    Guests must arrive 20 minutes prior to their session.
    Latecomers will not be admitted.
