On The Table: By Paul Dumetz. These new works by artist Paul Dumetz explore functional ware and are the result of a three year mentorship process with established ceramic artist Maryke Henderson. Featuring striking and unique surfaces, colours and wood ash glazes, the pieces are at once utilitarian and beautiful. Paul Dumetz was the recipient of the Belconnen Arts Centre CAPO Incusion Award in 2017.

Places: By Solomon Grainger. Places is an abstract body of work capturing the essence of parts of the world that have profoundly affected the artist, and fragmented imaginings of where the future will take him. The series is personal to his own experience, yet steeped in themes that are universal, and invite his audience to ponder the rich value of their personal history, and in turn the beauty in uncertainty of what lies ahead.

Discomfort: By Joshua Sleeman-Taylor. Discomfort is an exhibition of etchings that investigate how imagery of the human body can be used as a vessel for emotional expression. Multiple references to minor movements are combined together to create new awkward forms. These figures are cumbersome, exposed and vulnerable.

Steven Isserlis plays Shostakovich

Map Unavailable

When Steven Isserlis and Richard Tognetti get together, you know there are going to be fireworks. Friends for over 20 years, their concert will hold a special place in this season. Shostakovich’s monumental first cello concerto sees Isserlis at his sublime best, while Haydn’s ‘London’ symphony – arguably the pinnacle of his compositional achievement – lies at the very heart of the ACO’s repertoire.

Adding to this special program are two world premieres – one by Australian composer Elena Kats-Chernin, whose colourful and expressive style makes a welcome return to the ACO, and a modern retelling of the concerto grosso by Samuel Adams, one of the most original compositional voices in the world today.

Amala Groom: Does she know the Revolution is coming?

Map Unavailable

Amala Groom is a Wiradjuri conceptual artist whose practice, as the performance of her cultural sovereignty, is informed and driven by First Nations epistemologies, ontologies and methodologies. Her work, a form of passionate activism, presents acute and incisive commentary on contemporary socio-political issues.

Articulated across diverse media, Groom’s work often subverts and unsettles western iconographies in order to enunciate Aboriginal stories, experiences and histories, and to interrogate and undermine the legacy of colonialism. Not wishing to create reactionary works which tacitly allow contemporary political operatives serving the colonial ideology to set her artistic agenda, Groom seeks to create works which proactively and creatively unpack and undermine the Colonial Project, the on-going philosophy of colonialism that has imperialistically subjugated Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples since 1770.

Why: CAPO Emerging Artists’ Prize

Map Unavailable

‘Deposit Wall’ (2017) by Alex Hobba

Artists > Jeremy Brown, Dean Cross, Bryan Foong, Alex Hobba, Skye Jamieson, and Nyx Mathews. Curated by Angus McGrath, winner of CAPO’s 2017 Curatorial Internship Award.

WHY is typified by a bold, minimal aesthetic. Across media, an attitude and critical stance of doubt permeates the show. Some works play with function; others critique the institutions with which art makers are awkwardly obliged to engage; others focus on identity. Although these concerns may seem divergent, all the artists acknowledge and respond to the broader, absurd present in which their practice exists. WHY doesn’t aim towards solving the big issue of these artistic and societal uncertainties, and instead mulls in existential confusion towards the present. Isn’t that expected from the youth of today?

Amala Groom: Does she know the Revolution is coming?

Map Unavailable

Amala Groom is a Wiradjuri conceptual artist whose practice, as the performance of her cultural sovereignty, is informed and driven by First Nations epistemologies, ontologies and methodologies. Her work, a form of passionate activism, presents acute and incisive commentary on contemporary socio-political issues.

Articulated across diverse media, Groom’s work often subverts and unsettles western iconographies in order to enunciate Aboriginal stories, experiences and histories, and to interrogate and undermine the legacy of colonialism. Not wishing to create reactionary works which tacitly allow contemporary political operatives serving the colonial ideology to set her artistic agenda, Groom seeks to create works which proactively and creatively unpack and undermine the Colonial Project, the on-going philosophy of colonialism that has imperialistically subjugated Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples since 1770.

Colour Etching

Map Unavailable

This workshop is a great introduction to the rich and expressive medium of etching. Etching is a medium with endless possibilities where an image is scratched, drawn or painted onto a metal plate and etched to produce a range of marks from delicate lines to painterly gesture. Ink is applied to the plate and the print is taken by placing dampened paper onto the plate and passing both through a press. Students will learn how to prepare plates, use a variety of mark making techniques, etch the plate and print using the intaglio presses. Paper preparation and press setting will also be taught.

The class will focus particularly on how to use colour to its best in etching.

2017 saw Hadal Maw release their album “Olm” through EVP Recordings (Psycroptic, King Parrot, Behemoth), displaying their inevitable breaking away from death metal and growing towards their ongoing desire to produce unique, meaningful works – instead of replicas.

With its sprawling atmosphere, simultaneously crushing and beautifully twisted guitars and amorphous drumming, “Olm” gave Hadal Maw its voice as a valuable contributor to the art form of heavy music. Heavy Magazine said that “Olm represents a seismic shift for Hadal Maw. It’s an intelligent, flawlessly-executed body of work… an outstanding example of modern technical death metal that exceeds all the necessary quality hallmarks…”

Amala Groom: Does she know the Revolution is coming?

Map Unavailable

Amala Groom is a Wiradjuri conceptual artist whose practice, as the performance of her cultural sovereignty, is informed and driven by First Nations epistemologies, ontologies and methodologies. Her work, a form of passionate activism, presents acute and incisive commentary on contemporary socio-political issues.

Articulated across diverse media, Groom’s work often subverts and unsettles western iconographies in order to enunciate Aboriginal stories, experiences and histories, and to interrogate and undermine the legacy of colonialism. Not wishing to create reactionary works which tacitly allow contemporary political operatives serving the colonial ideology to set her artistic agenda, Groom seeks to create works which proactively and creatively unpack and undermine the Colonial Project, the on-going philosophy of colonialism that has imperialistically subjugated Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples since 1770.

You would be hard pressed to think of a bigger middle finger to genre elitists than SATYRICON.

SATYRICON have been proudly forging their own unique path for over 25 years, ever evolving with each release, the duo comprised of drummer Frost and frontman Satyr have blasted up the ranks for decades producing some of the most pivotal albums in black metal.

Their reputation as one of modern metal’s most vital, important and forward-thinking bands is way beyond dispute and routinely backed up by their unerring prowess and power as one of the great live bands. SATYRICON are in better form than ever and it “sounds like they have just tapped into a fresh well of inspiration and are determined to drain it dry.” – Metal Hammer

Joining SATYRICON will be one of the fastest rising Metal bands in Australia… DEADSPACE. Boasting influences from post black metal, depressive black metal, post rock, goth rock and melodic death metal but consistently failing to hide behind either. DEADSPACE bring a frenzied spirit of fury and desperation into the live arena, delivering an undeniably dense aura of emotional destruction

A Night In Texas

Map Unavailable

With Resist the Thought and Iconoclast. Tickets available.

Fresh off their first European headline tour, Brisbane’s deathcore outfit ’A NIGHT IN TEXAS’ hit the road to abolish Australia this spring with support from Sydney’s ‘RESIST THE THOUGHT’ and Perth’s ICONOCLAST’.
Unleashing a fierce and unique blend of satantic infused riffs, devastating breakdowns and face scorching vocals to create a recipe for doomsday.

Back from the dead are Western Sydney band ‘RESIST THE THOUGHT’. After calling it a day in 2013 these NSW heavyweights have risen from the grave after the release of their crushing new single entitled “Set Me Free”. Whilst remaining fast and heavy, it featured a matured sound which stepped outside of the popularised ‘Deathcore’ feel to deliver a modern take on the bands traditional sound.

Hailing from Perth, Western Australia, ICONOCLAST will bring their heavy, technical, and melodic brand of modern death metal across the east coast, having just released their latest single ‘IN ASHES’ with more new material to be debuted on this tour!

Sabbath Bloody Sabbath

After 19 albums and almost 5 decades of touring, Black Sabbath deserve the title of ‘Godfathers of Metal’. The band defined the genre with releases such as Black Sabbath (1970), Paranoid (1970) and Master of Reality (1971). They were ranked by MTV as the “Greatest Metal Band” of all time and have influenced countless bands in their time. From Tony Iommi’s iconic riffs to Ozzy Osbourne’s classic wail and unparalleled stage presence, Black Sabbath are the definition of rock and roll success and excess.

Sabbath Bloody Sabbath is the ultimate tribute show that brings all the magic and mayhem of Black Sabbath back to the stage.

From the air raid sirens of ‘War Pigs’ to the crashing thunder of ‘Black Sabbath’, the show authentically delivers the hits such as ‘Paranoid’ and ‘Iron Man’ as well as Black Sabbath’s live favourites like ‘Children of the Grave’ and ‘Into the Void’.

Thrown into the mix are some rare gems, coupled with an unparalleled attention to detail and amazing light show and production make this show a MUST SEE event for any Black Sabbath fan.
