The exhibition centres on the history of rebetiko, a form of Greek popular music that emerged from the 1922 destruction of the city of Smyrna. Masonik presents this tradition as simultaneously fragile and resilient, comforting and threatening, and an important cultural refuge for the exiled.

About Heathcote Cultural Precinct (HCP)

Heathcote Cultural Precinct acknowledges the Beeliar people of the Noongar Nation on which Heathcote is built. We recognise their continuing connection to the land, waters and community of this area and pay our respects to their elders past, present and future in the spirit of reconciliation.

It features the Heathcote Gallery, a contemporary art gallery with rotating exhibitions of new and recent work by emerging and established artists, and the Heathcote Museum dedicated to the site’s history, as well as artists studios, an Artist in Residency program, stunning venues for hire and numerous public workshops and events.
