Is This Sydney's Most Intimate Art Exhibition?

Broadsheet Sydney

Kirsty Sier

There's a big difference between viewing art in a gallery and viewing it in someone's home. The first option lends itself to detached study, while art hung on a living room wall often comes hand-in-hand with a human story and personal history.

The genre of the musical thrives from making sunshine of shit. Bad things happen, but transforming them into song and dance makes us feel like everything will be alright in the end. ...more
