You're Standing In IT

does anyone remember that great ABC comedy show from the 1980's? chunky custard etc.? I hope I'm not hip and happening that the readers of this blog are all under 25 or something....

anyway - thought the title: Australia, you're standing in it befits the theme of this weeks art listings - especially since I'm NOT!

Biennale Star Ruark Lewis has a blog about a show at Gymea (where?) called Our Lucky Country

Gymea is actually part of the shire - scene of surfie pogroms in 2005 - and now site of handwringing arty farty pinko ratbag angst from troublemakers such as Moi.

there'll be a pinko-nic in Cronulla this Australia Day (that's Friday 12-2pm) for artists and friends at the Gunnamatta Park at the northern end off Tonkin Street which is at the back of Cronulla Train Station.

It's meant for friends of the exhibiting artists in the show - but you could just turn up and name drop and be fine, I reckon.....

Ruark says "come to Cronulla and enjoy this beautiful parkland setting - there are bayside swimming baths, or the ferry ride to Bundeena after lunch, a walk, a snooze, just sit & read the paper or whatever - great raves and meet each other.
we'll be down there at the picnic tables - there are beautiful old shelter there
= or park on Nicholson Parade and bring the things you like to eat/drink"

It sounds a bit suss if noone's bringing any pr for the Barbie.....
