March Pop-Up Newsletter What a month! I love Autumn but it seemed to arrive too quickly. A little trip to Tasmania has distracted me and my arts news is arriving late in the month, but here it is and plenty to see…
ON NOW IN SYDNEY
Until Sunday 22 March…
Louise Whelan. African Australians
Image #06 from African Australians by Louise Whelan
If you haven’t been to see this one then you are missing out! Vibrant African colour palettes, patterned with Australian suburbia and the surrounding landscape. Louise photographs her subjects confident with bold colour and style, posing proudly, identifying with both African and Australian culture. Customs House is a real Sydney gem and and one the city’s most beautiful free spaces. And you can borrow books too!
Customs House, 31 Alfred Street, Circular Quay

Alison Alder & Mini Graff. Some Posters / Local Positions
Until 11 April
Renowned print makers and teachers, Alder & Graff make a statement of support for the communities in Millers Point, Dawes Point and The Rocks struggling to save their homes. It’s now one year ago that the State Government announced it would sell off all public housing in these areas. Their poster and stencil works are provocative, political and persuasive. This show contributes to Future Feminist Archive as part of the 40th Anniversary of International Women’s Year. Check out the website for Lectures and Talks as part of the Program.
Thurs-Sat 11am-6pm (close 5pm Sat)
The Cross Art Projects, 8 Llankelly Place, Kings Cross
Photographer Asher Milgate returns to the town he grew up in, Wellington, NSW, to document the life of the traditional owners, the Binjang people of the Wiradjuri nation. …Survivors… records stories from Wellington’s elders – and elders in waiting – about life at Nanima, the Common and on the outskirts of town. In 1832 the first inland Aboriginal mission was established in Wellington, which became the Nanima Mission in 1910. The mission became the longest continually operating Aboriginal reserve in Australia. The elders of Wellington shared with Asher some of their most intimate memories; tales of their families, of love, regret, hope and hardship.
