POPSART: Patricia Piccinini’s Curious Affection is a surprisingly emotional experience at GOMA

Recently I had the privilege of an intimate tour of Curious Affection, Patricia Piccinini’s new show that opened on Friday 23rd at GOMAlead by the artist herself. It felt like our small group of rag-tag journalists and media types were transformed into pilgrims being lead by a Sage on a spiritual journey through which could only be described as a very moving insight into not only what is it is to be human but what is the matrix of life....

Theatre Review: Jane and Kel go to Hell is a hilarious Dante’s Inferno for the avo-on-toast generation (to April 7th at Metro Arts, Brisbane)

Theatre Review: Love / Hate Actually at the Brisbane Powerhouse

Love, Actually is one of those Christmas films that had a significant impact on me the first time I saw it. I’ve since seen it more than once, and each time it has elicited a similar set of emotions within me that have confounded many. I absolutely detested the film and felt it was a ridiculously bad use of an incredible cast. I found its glib, surface level postcard views on what love supposedly was genuinely distasteful and it had an impact on me that carried through to the present day. When I heard that there was a show at the Wonderland Festival dedicated to those who either love or hate the film in question, I knew I had to go.... Read More | Share it now!
