Hi everyone!! Happy New Year!!
Kids back to school, time to concentrate on a new exhibition, which is just around the corner!!
FAMÍLIA, a group exhibition with fabulous Brazilian artists. Here´s more information, I´d love to see you all there!!! :)
Avalon, NSW - January 8, 2019, A group of six Brazilian visual artists based in Sydney have gathered to share their experiences and collaborate with each other. This exhibition, entitled 'Familia' is the collaboration resulting from their individual journeys coming together
in a group. The exhibition showcases creations by Cassia Bundock, Fabio Manzini (a.k.a. Juxta.fab), Flavia Julius, Lia Marxx, Marisa Pasicznik Ross, and Murilo Manzini (a.k.a. Muzi).
"Familia" invites the spectator to visit their homeland and to deconstruct stereotypes and paradigms. As they've settled in their new land, the artists gravitate towards their roots, renegotiating personal and artistic identity and connection as they live their lives and practice their art in an intercultural dialectic space.
New and previous lives, locations and families come together; new cultural references and fresh feelings have merged with ingrained memories and emotions. Where the original family is created by a union of marriage or blood, the familia is made and re-made by new transnational engagements as their journeys and lives continue in Australia.
'Familia' blends the Brazilian bossa with the spirit of the Australian bush. It fuses and renegotiates rhythm and happiness, colours and dots, the beach and the city.
The exhibition is part of Be Brave ArtSpace's summer calendar. The gallery is located at 5-7 Careel Head Rd, Avalon Beach NSW 2107. The dates for this group exhibition are February 08, trough to March 3, 2019. The opening night will happen on February 8 from 5 to 8 PM.

I was in Sydney in year 2000 (this is before this city became home for me, 12 years ago), and remember one night ending up in Darling Harbour with a friend, totally by chance.
