NAS NEO

THE FUTURE OF NOW ON GADIGAL LAND

THURSDAY 5 MAY

6–10PM

 

The National Art School is excited to announce NAS NEO, a new after-hours program that will bring together critical and progressive arts practice across inclusive and diverse platforms.

NAS NEO is a series of weekly multidisciplinary, artist-driven cultural events in collaboration with the next generation of change-makers, innovators and creators.

Every Thursday night.

NAS NEO presents:

THE BIG DRAW

COLLABORATIVE DRAWING

CENTRAL COURTYARD

5-9pm

With the shadow play of the evening as stimulus, take up a pen and contribute to a collaborative drawing with artist facilitators Melinda Hunt and Aaron McGarry. Greek myth has it that representation began with the tracing of a sleeping lover’s shadow on a candlelit wall, and our projected light will cast a panoply of still and moving forms into a night-long drawing.

 

PANEL DICUSSION

CELL BLOCK THEATRE

6.15-7.15pm

Drawing is direct action; a form of release. It enables us to transmit ideas and feelings, to escape the dictates of written language and dive into a process of visual discovery. Our panel of artists, Luke Thurgate, Skye Wagner, Aude Parichot, will reflect on their experiences of the many processes by which drawings evolve – the rapid and the gradual, the rough and the refined – and will share their delight in the act of drawing.

DJ DIOLA

7.15-8.15pm

Plutonic Lab feat. Natalie Slade and DJ DIOLA

8.15-10.00pm

Plutonic Lab is an award winning Australian music producer, engineer, artist & performer. Sometimes known as Pluto, he is also one half of soul/pop duo “SoundsLike FRANCO” with vocalist Natalie Slade, one third of Canadian/Australian rap group “SHWING” with BBRC members Roshin & Bronze as well as the international tour drummer for multi platinum selling/award winning group Hilltop Hoods.
