Milagro Tequila launches ‘Museo of Miracles’ exhibition at So Cal, Neutral Bay

The world’s most-awarded tequila, Milagro, launched a photography exhibition by Mexico City based photographer Mark Alor Powell called Museo of Miracles at So Cal Neutral Bay on Wednesday 3 May 2017.

The photography exhibition captures everyday Mexico City and the inspiration behind the Milagro brand.

It was launched just in time for Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for fifth of May) which is an annual Mexican holiday commemorating the Mexican Army’s victory over French troops on 5 May 1862 under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza,

In the USA, the date has become associated with the celebration of Mexican-American culture. In Mexico, it is celebrated with military parades, a Mexican fiesta, dancing, flowers, feasts, and of course, tequila!

In celebration of the exhibition, SoCal will also host Milagro Sundays throughout the exhibition period. There will be Milagro Margarita specials, tequila tasting flights, photo competitions and the taste of an authentic Mexican menu. Guests can go into the running to win Milagro Margarita kits, and an exclusive Museo of Miracles print alongside a bottle of Milagro, simply by uploading a social photo of their favourite piece at the exhibition using the tags @MilagroTequila #MilagroTequila and #MuseoOfMiracles.

Milagro is 100 percent blue agave tequila, renowned for its smoothness, mixability and crisp clear taste. The Milagro Tequila range consists of six bottles, Silver, Reposado and Añejo and three Select Barrel Reserve ranges.

Milagro was founded in 1997 by Mexico City natives Danny Schneeweiss and Moy Guindi. Master Distiller Pedro Juarez has two key methods: firstly, the use of the remarkable Jalisco Highlands 100% estate-grown blue agave;  and secondly, a new kind of distilling process, combining both pot and column stills together.

There were two Milagro tequila cocktails served at the launch: the Margarita (Milagro tequila, fresh lime juice, and agave nectar, garnished with a lime wedge and salt) and the most popular tequila based cocktail in Mexico, the Paloma (Milagro tequila, ruby grapefruit juice, agave syrup, chilli and soda, garnished with a lime wedge). In addition, guests got to taste Milagro tequila Silver and Reposade straight

The drinks were matched with Mexican food including: dips with corn chips, tacos, ceviche, enchiladas and churros with chocolate dipping sauce.

In addition to viewing the photographs, guests listened to a Mariachi band which was playing in full swing all night.

Museo of Miracles runs from Friday 5 May 2017 to Sunday 18 June 2017 at So Cal, Neutral Bay.

So Cal is located at 1 Young Street Neutral Bay and is open seven days a week.

Four artists will auction their art for charity

The opening night of Project Five (Volume 8) at the Darling Quarter Village Green on Friday 30 September 2016 featured the live painting of four headline street artists. The artworks they created are now going under the hammer at an auction at the Lend Lease Darling Quarter Theatre (from 6pm) on Thursday 27 October 2016.

Launching in 2009, Project Five is Australia’s longest-running contemporary street art project that was first conceived by aMBUSH Gallery. The collaboration has raised over $100,000 for Australian not-for-profit arts initiatives, while at the same time commissioning 32 urban artists, and entertaining millions of visitors. It has also hosted kids’ art workshops and a month long public exhibition at aMBUSH Gallery’s outdoor gallery space, OPEN, at Darling Quarter. This year, the charity is Monkey Baa Theatre Company.

The opening night included live painting by the four headline artists, a DJ spinning tunes, wine and canapes being circulated, and a crowd of onlookers observing the creation of the art.

On Thursday 27 October 2016, art lovers can purchase those artworks from the four edgy street artists: Kaff-eine, Brett Chan, Georgia Hill and Mik Shida, for a good cause.

The auction of Project Five (Volume 8) will be presided over by FBi’s prolific deejay Stephen Ferris and Art Market Works auctioneer Anne Phillips.

All hopeful collectors need to do is visit Project Five’s website and register to attend.

Street art aficionados Bill Dimas and John Wiltshire, co-Directors of aMBUSH Gallery, Project Five’s curators and passionate promoters of contemporary street art, say this is not just a chance to own a piece of Australian art history, but also to support Project Five’s nominated charity partner not-for-profit kids’ theatre company Monkey Baa.

 

Come along and see these compelling and powerful works by Australia’s up and coming artists. Buyers of the artwork are not only making a great investment to own a piece of collectable art, they are also supporting artistic experiences for young people.

Sydney Fringe Festival highlights announced

Sydney Fringe Festival, the largest independent arts festival in NSW, marks seven years of success by announcing its largest and most dynamic program yet, to be presented from 1 until 30 September. For the first time in 2016, Sydney Fringe together with Inner West Council will unveil and enliven a new Sydney cultural precinct ‘Off Broadway’ bringing pop-up spaces, performances and street activations to a previously disused strip of Parramatta Road.

Sydney Fringe Festival returns to take over the city this September with a ‘call to party’ theme inviting audiences onto the streets with more than 300 productions in over 50 venues spread across five cultural villages. Highlighting the city’s vibrant culture, the cultural villages presented for Fringe will activate Sydney suburbs with a diverse program spanning theatre, music, comedy, visual art, film, musical  theatre, dance, circus, literature and poetry.

Sydney Fringe CEO and Festival Director Kerri Glasscock said: “In 2016 the Sydney Fringe Festival will put the sparkle back into our City’s nightlife. It’s time for the Independent sector to stand up and say “party”, to celebrate the rich cultural offerings that are lovingly created throughout the City all year round and we want you to be there. This year we’ll be reawakening old haunts, reviving long forgotten venues and activating new precincts across the City throughout the month of September.”

A highlight of the 2016 festival will be the new Sydney creative precinct titled ‘Off Broadway’ to be unveiled by Sydney Fringe and Inner West Council for the first time during the Festival. Off Broadway will host a series of events in the disused shop fronts along Parramatta Road in Sydney’s inner west.

FRINGE IGNITE, the festival’s opening party, returns on Saturday 3 September and will take place in Darlinghurst along Stanley Street and neighbouring laneways. Teaming up with the Live Music Office and APRA AMCOS with guest curator Barney McAll, Fringe Ignite features a decadent program that will then spill into the neighbouring venues of Oxford St and Darlinghurst post 8pm for further celebrations. Further parties are planned for the Festival including a series of themed discos to take place at venues around inner Sydney.

Sydney Fringe Festival is delighted to work with 2016 Festival Ambassadors including actress Camilla Ah Kin, actress Paula Arundell, actor Nicholas Brown, comedian Sam McCool and the multi-talented Stone family with Yael Stone of Orange Is The New Black fame, musician Elana Stone and Jake Stone previously of band Bluejuice.

An extended family program of events will be offered with FRINGE KIDS presented over the first weekend of the school holidays on 24 – 25 September, including workshops by local Instagram sensation Handy With Scissors plus kids performances and family friendly events at 5 Eliza St Newtown. Sydney Fringe is also hosting a high tea for mothers while the kids are in workshops, a champagne brunch in aid of raising funds for Fringe Festival’s community partner Look Good Feel Better providing support to cancer patients. Camperdown Park will play host to a family movie screened in the park on 17 September and an Edwardian inspired family cricket and picnic day on 18 September.

A large-scale Silent Dinner Party at Paddington Town Hall on Saturday 24 September will be a highlight of the Festival’s closing weekend, following the popular 2015 Fringe Festival event that set a record for the largest silent dinner party. Guests at the Silent Dinner Party are instructed to “not use words or your voice, please don’t read or write, try to make as little noise as possible, don’t interact with technology and stay for at least 2 hours.” Dinner is included in the ticket price, offering the chance for guests be part of a living artwork that has now been hosted in eight countries across the world.

The full program for the 2016 Sydney Fringe Festival will be announced on 1 August 2016. Please visit https://www.sydneyfringe.com/ for further details and updates.

The art of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera is now exhibiting at the Art Gallery of NSW

The Art Gallery of New South Wales is delighted to present Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera: from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection, an exhibition that explores the art – and the relationship – of one of art history’s most celebrated couplings.

Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera: from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection brings together 33 works by the artists as well as three short films; personal letters and 57 photographs documenting Kahlo and Rivera’s lives. The exhibition considers the fruits of their companionship from their artistic output, to their public personas and impact on popular culture.

Dr Michael Brand, director of the Art Gallery of New South Wales, said the exhibition presents an important opportunity for Australian audiences across the nation.

“It has been more than a decade since either Kahlo or Rivera’s work has been seen in Australia and it is the first time ever their work has been exhibited in Sydney.

“The exhibition reveals the artists’ fiercely independent artistic visions while also pointing to political, cultural and personal concerns that affected them both,” Brand said.

Jacques and Natasha Gelman began collecting Mexican modern art during the 1940s. Close friends of Kahlo and Rivera, they amassed a significant collection including commissioned works by Kahlo and Rivera. Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera: from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection is in many ways a portrait of two marriages – the first being that of the artists and the second being that of the Gelman’s, who had a profoundly collaborative and dedicated approach to collecting the avant-garde artists of their time.

Robert Littman, President of the Vergel Foundation which owns and manages the Gelman Collection, said he is delighted that Kahlo and Rivera’s masterpieces will be seen in Sydney for the first time.

“Natasha and Jacques Gelman enthusiastically acquired and commissioned works by Frida Kahlo and her husband, Diego Rivera, when there were only a handful of collectors in Mexico.

“Their passion for Mexican art continues through the Vergel Foundation which actively collects contemporary Mexican art and supports Mexican artists,” said Littman.

The lives and work of artists Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera continue to captivate audiences more than half a century after their deaths. Nicholas Chambers, coordinating curator and Art Gallery of NSW Senior Curator Modern and Contemporary International Art, said their unconventional bond was passionate and fiery, steeped in political ideals and their love of indigenous Mexican culture.

“Kahlo and Rivera were a constant inspiration to one another. They remained companions through marriage, separation, a multitude of affairs, financial troubles, considerable bouts of illness and a troubled political landscape,” Chambers said.

“Their dedication and respect for one another’s practice was unrelenting and this exhibition highlights that enduring connection,” Chambers added.

“Fridamania” is alive and well in Sydney with the Gallery experiencing one of the highest-ever advance tickets sales of an exhibition prior to opening. Timed ticketing will assist to accommodate the enormous interest in the exhibition. For the duration of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera: from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection gallery-goers are encouraged to book in advance to secure entry to the exhibition.

Alongside the Gallery’s publication, Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera (RRP $24.95), a new online resource that offers access to fascinating stories about Kahlo and Rivera, their artworks, photos and special offers associated with the exhibition has been launched by the Gallery. Get closer to Frida and Diego

Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera: from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection is also accompanied by An unconventional union, a series of performance lectures by Australian artists who will consider the exhibition from a social, historical and political context.

The colour and vibrancy of Mexico will also be celebrated in the Gallery’s Entrance Court for Art After Hours with Frida flower-making and the sounds of Victor Valdes’ Real Mexico Mariachi Band.

Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera: from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection is generously supported by the Art Gallery of New South Wales’s President’s Council.

WORLD PREMIERE BJORK DIGITAL EXHIBITION UNVEILED AT CARRIAGEWORKS FOR VIVID SYDNEY

Carriageworks and Vivid Sydney today unveiled the BJÖRK DIGITAL exhibition, including two world premiere virtual reality works, presented free to the public from 4 until 18 June 2016 exclusively at Carriageworks in Australia. BJÖRK DIGITAL features immersive, large-scale and intimate digital video works and virtual reality experiences across five bespoke spaces at Carriageworks, created by Björk collaborating with some of the finest visual artists, film makers and programmers in the world. Björk will also perform DJ sets at two sold out concerts at Carriageworks on Friday 3 June and Saturday 4 June 2016.

BJÖRK DIGITAL invites audiences to experience Björk’s music and videos in 4D through the immersive medium of virtual reality, including the world premiere of Notget by Warren du Preez and Nick Thornton Jones, along with the Australian premiere of virtual reality projects Stonemilker and Mouth Mantra. Shot on location in Iceland by award winning director Andrew Huang, Stonemilker presents Björk in a windswept 360 degree film, while Mouth Mantra, directed by Jesse Kandra, transports the viewer to inside the Icelandic icon’s mouth, her tongue and teeth warped and twisted seemingly taking on a life of its own.

BJÖRK DIGITAL includes the Australian premiere of Black Lake presented exclusively in Sydney, an immersive cinema experience featuring a cutting-edge surround sound system, where the audience is encased in the claustrophobic and visceral experience of Black Lake. Commissioned by The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York, the work is directed by Los Angeles based fashion and music filmmaker Andrew Thomas Huang and was filmed in the highlands of Iceland.

Speaking from Sydney Björk commented on the project: Björk said: “I am very excited for you to see the VR videos to vulnicura. VR is not only a natural continuity to the music video but has an even more intimate theatrical potential, ideal for this emotional journey.”

A separate space in the exhibition offers visitors the chance to explore Björk’s immersive multi-media educational experience Biophilia, the first ever app to be purchased into the collection of MoMA. Biophilia comprises a suite of original music, interactive artworks and musical artefacts, that saw Björk collaborate with artists, designers, scientists, instrument makers, writers and software developers to create an extraordinary exploration of the universe and its physical forces, processes and structures.

BJÖRK DIGITAL also features a curated program of Björk’s extensive video work, remastered for this unique exhibition experience at Carriageworks.   The video works spans the artist’s 24 year career including collaborations with film directors including Academy Award winners Spike Jones, Michel Gondry, Nick Knight and Stéphane Sednaoui.

Carriageworks is located at 245 Wilson St, Redfern NSW 2016.  

EXHIBITION DETAILS: Björk Digital is presented from 4 – 18 JUNE, 10AM until 6PM. Entry to the exhibition is FREE. Timed tickets or bookings are required for the VR rooms in the exhibition, and are available online and onsite same-day. VR rooms are recommended 13+ Entry and access to the Cinema Room is free, no bookings required.

See the Director’s Picks at the Sydney Film Festival

The 63rd Sydney Film Festival (8-16 June 2016) held their per-festival drinks on Tuesday 24 May 2016 with great food from Abode Bistro at the Parkroyal Hotel Darling Harbour.

In 2016 the Festival will present 244 films from 60 countries including 25 World Premieres, representing hundreds of fresh perspective and new stories from across Australia and the world.

Nashen Moodley, Festival Director, announced his director’s pick, which included:

Hotel Coolgardie

A wryly observed documentary set in a tiny mining town somewhere between Kalgoorlie and Perth. Two Finnish girls on working visas, Lina and Steph, head to this remote spot for a three-month stint behind the bar of the local pub. It’s a tough gig. The girls contend with drunkenness, relentless sexual advances, and a belittling, bullying boss. The booze-addled patrons rant about failed relationships and female duplicity; it seems the girls’ only ally is the toothless, odorous local, Canman. The barmaids struggle to negotiate this unhealthy environment, with little by way of distraction. Gleeson’s warts-and-all debut is by turns shocking, amusing and unexpectedly moving.

Suntan

Is set on a sun-drenched Greek island and is about a middle-aged doctor becomes obsessed with a group of beautiful, frequently naked, young tourists in this sensual and disquieting drama.

Notes of Blindness

In the early 1980s, writer and theologian John Hull lost his eyesight after decades of steady deterioration, documenting his experience on audio cassettes. Upon publication, author and neurologist Oliver Sacks described Hull’s diaries as “The most extraordinary, precise, deep and beautiful account of blindness I have ever read. It is to my mind a masterpiece.” In 2013, Spinney and Middleton made an award-winning short film based on Australian-born Hull’s experiences entitled Notes on Blindness: Rainfall (SFF 2014). Hull’s profound life is now the inspiration for this breathtaking feature-length film. The filmmaking duo, with an approach akin to Clio Barnard’s The Arbor (SFF 2011), cast actors Dan Skinner and Simone Kirby to lip sync to Hull’s original recordings. The resulting film, and associated VR project (which can be viewed at the Festival Hub), is a remarkable re-creation of the author’s thoughts and observations that unearths the interior world of blindness. Hull was closely involved with the process before his death, aged 80, in July last year.

The Lure

Is unique Polish romance-horror-mermaid-musical that defies classification and deservedly won the Special Jury Award for Unique Vision and Design at Sundance 2016.

Rosita

Is a film with an funny and insightful look at immigration and arranged marriage, a young Filipino woman relocates to a fishing village in Denmark to wed a middle-aged widower.

Zach’s Ceremony

Ten-year-old Zach enjoys fishing and boxing with his dad Alec, and is looking forward to his initiation ceremony. It’s a vital part of his Indigenous heritage, marking the transition from boyhood to manhood. Growing up isn’t easy, and for Zach there are the added pressures of racism and city living – a long way from his father’s community in Far North Queensland. An Aboriginal activist, leader and actor, Alec is a devoted dad, but his strict parenting inevitably causes friction. Shot over six years, this is a remarkable portrait of a young man struggling with identity and his father’s expectations, as he heads towards adulthood.

Weiner

This is a absorbing exposé of Anthony ‘sexting scandal’ Weiner’s 2013 New York mayoral campaign which won the Grand Jury Prize for Best Documentary at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.

Discover the timeless beauty of photography at the Rocks Discovery Museum

On Tuesday 17 May 2016 I attended the launch of the photography, Timeless, at The Rocks Discovery Museum.

Timeless is a photographic exhibition that is part of the Headon Festival. It is the work of a Sydney-based photographer, filmmaker and doctor Nelson Lau.

Timeless is a story of star-crossed lovers from parallel worlds who try to transcend the fabric of time. Inspired by the architecture of The Rocks and the films of Hong Kong director Wong Kar-wai, Timeless uses The Rocks as a cinematic backdrop to this love story.

Timeless, a fictional photo narrative in which the images look like scenes from a film. The photos invite the viewer to interpret the images to imagine the story behind these ‘scenes’.

The majority of the images have been taken around The Rocks, with other featured locations including Town Hall, Museum Station and Camperdown Cemetery. It is a multi-faceted exhibition using photographs, words and a digital display of cinemagraphs.

The exhibition Timeless will be on view from 14 May to 3 July 2016 from 10am5pm at The Rocks Discovery Museum, Kendall Lane (enter via Argyle Street), The Rocks.
Admission is free.
