The work of Patricia Piccinini takes on a new light when GOMA presents the Up Late series for her new exhibition 'Curious Affection'.
One of the most interesting and challenging contemporary Australian artists working today, Patricia is influenced by science, nature, fiction and the unconscious in her explorations concerning the social and moral impacts of advanced technology on people, animals and our natural environment.
The Up Late experience will combine the exclusive-to-GOMA exhibition with DJs, bands, bars and floor talks on the emotive nature of the featured artworks across five Friday evenings, each with its own curated line-up of entertainment.
The series will be launched by a one-night-only performance by DJ Slymewave (Joanna Syme of Melbourne duo Big Scary), with Brisbane musician Grace Stevenson (Rebel Yell) kick-starting each session for the rest of the season.
The full programme features performances from Amaya Laucirica, Xylouris White, Lydia Lunch Retrovirus, Zola Jesus, Miss Blanks, Cable Ties, Gooch Palms and a finale performance by a favourite of Piccinini, Cloud Control.
'Patricia Piccinini: Curious Affection' Up Late is on at GOMA 8 June-6 July.
