Start your Saturday evening off with performances from Wellington bands The Photogenics and Fantasing.
The Photogenics—Chrissie Butler (drums, vocals), Caroline McQuarrie (drums, vocals) and Bryce Galloway (keys, vocals)—are band #7 in a project called 'Four Songs, Played Twice' in which Galloway set out to start a new band every month, for a year. This will be their first and last performance. Don't miss it.
Fantasing is an Aotearoa New Zealand-based art collaboration. Combining the cosmic fantasies of Bek Coogan, Claire Harris, Sarah Jane Parton and Gemma Syme, Fantasing is an 'internet potato' cultivated from the history of feminist artist collectives, and their practice spans music, video works, sculpture, writing and Instagram.
These performances are the closing acts in City Gallery and Massey University's Cindy Sherman Symposium. Join us for these evening performances from 5.30pm ($8), or come for the whole day from 10.30am and hear artists, curators, academics, and cultural commentators look at Cindy Sherman's enduring effect on photography and art ($40/$20).
