2015 Port Fairy Folk Festival

Filed under: acoustic music, folk music, Festivals & Major Events, Gigs — site admin @ 11:47 am

The fourth-round line-up announcement for this year’s eagerly awaited Port Fairy Folk Music Festival is upon us and, led by the likes of Skipping Girl Vinegar, Bearded Gypsy Band and Frank Yamma, 2015 is shaping up to be one of the biggest in the event’s storied history.
Things may have seemed a little quiet on the Skipping Girl Vinegar front of late, with last full-length Keep Calm Carry The Monkey dropping back in 2011, but the Melburnian indie-rockers nonetheless have kept up appearances in the time since to the point of being coaxed to bring out the big guns to grace the Port Fairy stage. South Australia’s Bearded Gypsy Band, meanwhile, have been solidly accruing a dedicated following everywhere their stomp-along sounds are heard, and local legend Frank Yamma should need no introduction to discerning listeners who have acquainted themselves with his dulcet tones over his more-than-decade-long career.

Remain in Light:
Photography from the MCA Collections
A selection of key photographic works from Sydney’s renowned Museum of Contemporary Art Australia opens at Bendigo Art Gallery on 21 February, 2015.
Remain in Light: Photography from the MCA Collections is a national touring exhibition that traces the development of contemporary photographic practice over the last 50 years.
Drawing on works from both the MCA Collection and the JW Power Collection, the exhibition presents Australian photographers alongside international and illustrates the story of the recent history of photography from the 1960s to present day.

Remain in Light crosses a range of media including black and white photography, artist books, photolithography and digital photography and brings together around 70 works from artists including Barbara Kruger, Mary Ellen Mark, Tracey Moffatt, Trent Parke, Patricia Piccinini, Mike Parr, Polixeni Papapetrou, Ed Ruscha and many more.
Viewed collectively, these works convey how photography has been at the centre of critical debates and themes throughout late twentieth and 21st century art. From the photo-document to mass –produced imagery, through to the rise of online platforms like Flickr and Instagram as a way of distributing images, Remain in Light looks at how traditional genres of photographic practice have been reinvigorated.
“The Bendigo collection is rich in photographic works and this medium continues to challenge and engage our visitors. We are delighted to be present this aspect of the MCA collection here in Bendigo alongside our collection as it reinforces the importance and accessibility of photography,” said Karen Quinlan, Director of Bendigo Art Gallery.

Remain in Light: Photography from the MCA Collections, February 21 – 19 April, 2015.
Laurence Aberhart, Ian Burn, Lewis Baltz, Janet Brosious, Christo, Elaine Campaner, Destiny Deacon, Rotimi Fani Kayode, Richard Hamilton, Barbara Kruger, Rosemary Laing, Suzy Lake, Mary Ellen Mark, Ricky Maynard, Tracey Moffatt, Trent Parke, Patricia Piccinini, Mike Parr, Polixeni Papapetrou, Ed Ruscha, Julia Rrap, Robert Rooney, David Stephenson, Emma White and William Yang.
