A weekend of mayhem

I've got a full diary this weekend and I'm not afraid to flaunt it!

It all kicks off on FRIDAY NIGHT at 6pm at the Petersham Bowling Club, cnr The Avenue and Brighton Street.
with delicious dinner cooked by Fiona, bowling shenanigans,
and a slide show by some amazing visiting Filipino artists who are here
for the Biennale: Alfredo Juan Aquilizan & Maria Isabel
Gaudinez-Aquilizan. There'll also be a powerpoint presentation by yours
truly, in which I attempt (perhaps unsuccessfully) to explain how a
combination of social interaction and blogging might be construed as

Then I'll stagger home and drunkenly serenade the boys in my backyard who are having a BBQ.

Saturday is oging to be a tricky one.

I could go into the city and lurch around ART ON THe ROCKS while making up my mind whether to head down to Loose for fun with mark titmarsh and silly string, or over the cross arts (33 roslyn Street Kings Cross) for CROSS CONVERSATION: 'May Day, May Day: Rethinking Art & Politics whihc kicks off at 3pm.
Speakers: Ann Stephen, curator and author of On Looking at Looking: The art and politics of Ian Burn (2006); Neil Towart, research director Unions NSW and curator of Trades Hall collection, Raquel Ormella artist and Craig Judd, curator Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery

I could also check out the current show: MAY DAY: THE RETURN OF ART & POLITICS IN THE 21st CENTURY
Or I could stay in the inner west and crawl over to chirssie cotter for free custard and goon as part of the EXHIBITION OPENING
SATURDAY 27 May, from 2.30pm to 6pm
Chrissie Cotter Gallery, Pidcock Street Camperdown (off Mallett Street,
and not far from Parramatta Road).
with afternoon tea, a little excursion to the former border of
Petersham at Johnston's Creek, and, if we're lucky, a ribbon-cutting by the Mayor
Himself, Sam Byrne.

Or I could go to the writers festival.

At night, there's a letterish type of thing at 8pm at the Bangarra theatre.

THE SPOKES - a spoken-word-music troupe, have words by BenEzra (aka Eytan Messiah), Bravo Child, Briohny Doyle, Alana
Hicks and Miles Merrill.
Live Music by John Maddox on Bass & Nigel Date on Guitar.

It's free.

sunday, again Art on the rocks which hopefully will involve my friend steve doing a paint drilling thing, and /or writers festival stuff.

Sunday night: third last ever frigid. night time at Newtown RSL.
