For The Guardian, I spoke to Venice Biennale artist Yuki Kihara about fa’afafine community, climate change, and resisting the image of the lone genius in her show Paradise Camp.
Join Arts Project Australia and West Space to celebrate the closing of the joint fandom-focused exhibition Sincerely Yours next weekend.
There’ll be an artist talk with curator Sophia Cai and artists Danny Lyons and Dylan Goh, followed by me, Natasha Hertanto and Diego Ramirez reading our commissioned fanfic. Then K-pop dance group AO crew will bust some moves and the bar will be open.
Saturday 5 March 2022
2 pm to 4 pm (exhibition open 12 pm to 4 pm)
35 Johnston Street, Collingwood VIC 3066
free – no bookings required – Auslan interpreted
The exhibition will be open until Sunday 6 March. You can also read all the Sincerely Yours fanfic, including mine, here at West Space Offsite.
I’ve created a spreadsheet of Australian critics in response to the lack of diversity in criticism. You can add yourself via this Google Form.
Hopefully it’s a useful resource for artists, venues, publicists and commissioning editors to access a wider pool of critics. You can view the spreadsheet here. Please share with all your critically-minded mates.
