The Koorie Heritage Trust have a new home at Federation Square (Levels 1&3, Yarra Building, Federation Square, Corner of Flinders and Swanston Streets, Melbourne Vic 3000) and celebrate their 30th birthday with an exhibition 'Wominjeka – A New Beginning' (19 Sep – 22 Nov 15).
"The exhibition shows the work of five early career artists, exhibited alongside pieces from the Trust's collection that have been the muse for their own artistic expression and stories." The five artists are Aunty Marlene Gilson, Georgia MacGuire, Mitch Mahoney, Josh Muir and Raymond Young. "Working with mentors, these artists have created new works in response to selected items from our collections."
The Trust collection artists are Stephen Glassborow, Wally Cooper, Tommy McRae, Glenda Nicholls, Letty Nicholls, Vena Ingram, Mandy Nicholson, Kelly Koumalatsos, Brian Firebrace, Treahna Hamm, Dorothy Lovett, William Barak, and Darren Pattie-Bux.

The William Kentridge exhibition is an amazing show, and below is a video of the media conference at Acmi. It's a very long video but it is great for if you want some insight on Kentrigde's work. Kentridge is very eloquent.

So ever since I saw Theo Jansen's Ted talk video in 2007 about his awesome Kinetic sculptors I wanted to see one up close and personal. I will be going to the Occupy Art event in Melbourne city square so while I'm there I will stop off at Fed Square to see his amazing sculptors. I can't wait. I will post a review of what I think later this week but in the meanwhile check out these videos.
