It’s hard to believe that it was over two weeks ago when Lord Mayor of Sydney Clover Moore and Dr Stanley Quek of Frasers Property launched our archival doc 1,386 days at FraserStudios. It was a fantastic night; about 250 guests and the perfect mix of artists, industry and stakeholders reflecting the collaboration that’s taken place over the last three-and-a-half years to make this project happen.
If you were unable to make the launch and would like a copy of the book, send through your mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org by close of business tomorrow (Wednesday 20 June) and we’ll send you a copy for free!
Since then, we’ve hosted a week of fantastic masterclasses and free classes, plus a very popular Platform 5 with Linda Luke from The Weather Exchange, a Tess de Quincey Co. initiative.
Last Thursday our program stepped up a gear for the final two weeks, with an informal artist talk and showing from performance trio POST, a highly interactive (and competitive!) game show format night from Tin Shed called the “Tin Shed Camping Tours” on Friday night, and a beautifully nostalgic and fitting tribute to the Studio 14 dance space from Martin del Amo and Julie-Anne Long (with cameos from Heidrun Lohr, Tess de Quincey, Rosie Dennis and our own James Winter and Sam Chester) on Saturday night.
Plus, the Cake Wine Bar opened with a resounding bang, with over 1000 people stopping by Thursday-Sunday to have a drink (from Cake’s very own wines from the Adelaide Hills and a careful selection of cider and beer) and enjoy performances from Mrs Bishop, Joyride, and Future Classic DJs, and jaffles from the super cute Jafe Jaffle Kombi van.
Coming up this week it’s a showing from stunning dancers Venettia Miller & Ryuichi Fujimura on Thursday, an evening of short works hosted by Matt Prest called “Cardio Church Gala Performance” on Friday night, and a very special WHIP IT evening of improvised performance on Saturday night.
All performances start at 7pm and tickets are available at the door. And if you haven’t seen the “Our House” exhibition of current Visual Arts Residents’ work or “100”, a photography exhibition by Arunas Klupsas, they’ll be open daily 2-6pm, during performances and while the Cake Wine Bar is in operation…
The Cake Wine Bar will be open Thursday-Friday 5-10pm, Saturday 3-10pm and Sunday 3-9pm and they’ve programmed some more amazing DJs and acoustic acts to keep the bar crowd entertained… check out their calendar below or visit their website for more info.
This is for a strictly limited time and FraserStudios will close its doors on Saturday 30 June with a final BBQ everyone’s invited to!
