Let’s Talk: The Young Arts and Journalism Awards with Volker Janssen

BY Alexandria Abishegam / Student View | 29-Aug-2017
A month ago, I sat down to have a chat with one of the founding members of the Young Arts and Journalism Awards in Australia, Volker Janssen. The art and journalism scene has always intrigued me, with so many new ways of expression and the rise of social media, the industry has become an even tougher nut to crack into. As many may already know, it is not the lack of content, but the lack of quality that is in demand. To combat this issue, the YAJA was set up to give students an opportunity to showcase their talents and express themselves in a unique form. With graduates struggling to find meaningful work experience, they now have a community that will support them.

No End of Blame: Scenes of Overcoming

BY Kabuku PR | 20-Sep-2017
This October, Sport For Jove and The Seymour Centre present Howard Barker’s pertinent political play, NO END OF BLAME, as part of the Seymour Centre’s Reginald Season for 2017. Set over six decades of the 20th Century, this rarely seen and immensely daring and original play follows the European odyssey of two passionate and provocative artists, one a painter the other a cartoonist, silenced by regulation and censorship, but refusing to give in. Barker’s extraordinary writing, razor sharp in its comic and tragic intensity, satirises the nature of our right to freedom of thought and speech, leaving corruption spreading through the land, uncovering the gruesome and savage nature of censorship, both behind the iron curtain and in the apparently ‘free world’.

Asadullah Shariatpanahi at the exhibition of the Hidden Vein of Colors - An Art Critique by Javid Ramezani

BY Susan Miller | 15-Sep-2017
Time compression. A Criticism on the Hidden Vein of Colors Exhibition in Iranian Artists Forum. By: Javid Ramezani; Art Research PhD., Tandis Art Magazine – Online Manager. How much does painting depend on time? The inner time of each artwork leads to infinity. It means the experience of people’s life has been tangling over the centuries up to now. And the audience as a questioner receives all this time at a moment. The artist's mental processing derives from an eternal challenge combined with the continuity of memories in the form of styles and works of art from the depths of the his or her unconscious and the foresight. An attempt that sometimes refers to an ideal and far-reaching dream.

Karyn Taylor: Implicate Order

BY Anna Pappas Gallery | 15-Sep-2017
Anna Pappas Gallery presents Karyn Taylor, 'Implicate Order,' opening Wednesday 4 October at 6pm. Challenging the viewer to participate in an experiential encounter with the unseen world, Karyn Taylor’s work explores themes that act as an invitation to engage with concepts that bridge a trajectory between the exactness of geometric forms and the fleshy materialism of the body. No electricity, no tubes, no wires. Taylor’s Perspex forms manipulate the refractive qualities of matter, allowing light to reverberate. A kind of internal alchemy, as if the works themselves have been lit from within.
