Micah Lexier: Here, Not Here.
For Lexier's 11th solo exhibition with Birch Contemporary the gallery space will become a minimalist environment, with the gallery's white walls supporting a series of carefully-placed arrows and accompanying texts. Here, Not Here started its life as a found image, one of thousands that Lexier has amassed as part of his archive of found imagery. With trademark restraint, Lexier transforms this image into a deceptively simple installation of image, text and context. Each of the gallery's four walls is a discreet artwork, yet each wall hosts the exact same elements, the only differences being colour and position. Together, the four walls coalesce into a cohesive installation that plays with repetition and subtle variation. ... more

theatrical performance 8pm
Mortar & Pestle presents Breaking Legs, written by Tom Dulack. Oct 12-14, and 19-21, 2017. Mortar & Pestle Productions invites you to help kick off their second season with the fast-paced comedy Breaking Legs. In this farcical comedy we are introduced to a group of successful Italian mobsters looking to strike it big by entering the world of theatre by producing an original play. Enter Terrence O'Keefe, the down-on-his-luck playwright and former college professor and love interest of the Mob Boss's beautiful daughter, Angie. Throw in plenty of drinks, mountains of pasta, family, and a "hit" and you have the perfect recipe for a heartwarming disaster of a comedy. Produced and directed by Melissa Beveridge.
