DRUNK MUMS RELEASE NEW SINGLE ‘ODE TO DEATH’ & HEAD OUT ON TOUR

BY Danae Effern | 20-Jun-2017
Melbourne rock outfit Drunk Mums return with a new single - Ode To Death - The first single of their forthcoming EP Denim. The track continues from their recent homage of hard rock and punk heard on their latest release Leather. Taking influence from Johnny Thunders and The Stooges the band takes a step back with this one, or so it seems, considering the lyrics have a pretty bleak undertone. Don’t let that fool you though, it is still something you could probably show ya parents and hell they’d probably like it too.

the unbearable beauty of waste

BY EMILIO CRESCIANI | 15-Jun-2017
The unbearable beauty of waste. "As I visited waste centres, tips and landfills I was overwhelmed by the sheer scale of waste. But I also found beauty in the shapes and textures, and in the history and memories the rubbish evokes.” A new exhibition by emerging artist Emilio Cresciani, at Co.As.It. Museo Italiano in Melbourne, explores waste as a portrait of our lives. Each photograph in his 2012 series Remains of the Day is a close up of different type of rubbish – tyre rims, circuit boards, hair dryers, cans, bullet casings, TVs, wires, internet cables and the other remains of our modern consumer lifestyle.Michael Fitzgerald, editor Art Monthly, said of this work: "Cresciani is staking a claim for his own sharply emerging photographic identity."

Undertone – A Group Exhibition

BY iPreciation | 10-Jun-2017
iPRECIATION is pleased to present “Undertone”, an exhibition featuring the works of three talented emerging artists from Singapore – Yeo Tze Yang, Bess Chan and Goh Jian Hong. Armed with a critical awareness of the rapidly changing world, these artists represent a burgeoning new generation of thinkers, dreamers and image-makers. Akin to the underlying, initial layers of paint on a blank canvas which may seem unassuming on first glance, each of them play an essential and inextricable role in the structure of a bigger picture. As artists just beginning to make their mark in the local arts scene, they signify a multitude of possibilities. Unified by a mutual desire to express their interpretations of the social issues and dysfunctions that arise from the urban environment they are situated in, they employ different tangents of painting practices to create works that are sincere, insightful and thought-provoking.
