Enter a strange world of supermarket colours and ubiquitous branding in Marlee McMahon’s paintings.

Optic White — an expression commonly associated with toothpaste — is an exhibition that explores the power of advertising through brand recognition. McMahon’s paintings find a balance between abstraction and realism to uncover the growing saturation of retail imagery within our daily visual culture.

Optic White is an exercise in order and control, where the impulse for cleanliness and a ‘sparkling finish’ borders on the obsessive.

Josephine Jakobi blurs the line between art and scientific observation in Halocline.

Jakobi draws on the patterns and rhythms of nature to create meticulous mixed media works, where ecological and biological systems are enmeshed within the fabric of the works themselves.

By creating work ‘from the point of view of an insect’, and by introducing actual organic material into each piece, Jakobi eliminates the distinctions between manmade and natural processes.  The Halocline—where freshwater meets seawater—becomes the point through which a greater set of material investigations can be carried out.

DYLANesque - the Bob Dylan story

DYLANesque - the Bob Dylan story

Esso BHP Billiton Wellington Entertainment Centre

Jeff Jenkins, lead singer, opens the show with a tale from 1961, when a young 19 year old hitch-hiked his way from Duluth Minnesota to New York City with a guitar and $10 in his pocket - and went on to become one of the world's most successful songwriters of all time.

Starting from his humble beginnings busking in cafes, 'DYLANesque - The Bob Dylan Story' is a 2-hour narrated rock show that leads you through the songs and events that shaped Dylan; his relationships and breakups, religious conversions, the dramatic scenes when Bob 'went electric' at Newport Folk Festival in 1965, how he went from playing solo to playing with The Band, through all his incarnations including the much loved Traveling Wilbury's.

This Bob Dylan tribute is a theatre piece that takes you on a moving and powerful musical journey.

CORANDERRK is about what might have been.

At a Victorian Parliamentary Inquiry in 1881, the men and women of the Coranderrk Aboriginal Reserve went head-to-head with the Aboriginal Protection Board.  Their goal was both simple and revolutionary: to be allowed to continue the brilliant experiment in self-determination they had pioneered for themselves on the scrap of country left to them.

CORANDERRK recreates the Inquiry.  This is both great theatre and great history.  It revives the voices of all those, black and white, who fought for a better pact between the country’s oldest and newest inhabitants.

This special production pays tribute to the resilience and adaptability of a people who rose to the challenge despite the odds, appropriating the power of the written word to make their own voices ring loud and clear.

CORANDERRK a collaboration between leading Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists, researchers, education experts and community members. The production aims to encourage a shared understanding of the past between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people.

Warnings: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander audiences are warned that this production contains images of deceased persons
