Bound by time: Denis Beaubois

from July 15, 2017 @ 10:00 AM until September 17, 2017 @ 4:00 PM
Latrobe Regional Gallery

Bound by time brings together works by Denis Beaubois created between 2011 and 2017.

Underpinning the exhibition is the Currency project where ideas and logic from economics and capitalism were used to devise and create artworks.

These works attempt to coexist in economic, artistic and ethical space. They unsteadily navigate and question the boundary where the conceptual and the financial cross what is deemed as ethical.

From the precarious nature of state sponsored art funding, to validation of artistic merit from the art market, this body of work looks at the charged relationship we, as a society, have with money.
The second project, titled No longer adrift, Composite territories explores the idea of settlement and assimilation through the negation of the past. It references the theme of migration and displacement from the perspective of the discarded fragment and plays with the formation of composite territories using dust.

René Magritte: The Revealing Image, Photos and Films

from August 19, 2017 @ 10:00 AM until September 19, 2017 @ 5:00 PM
Latrobe Regional Gallery

As the only exhibiting venue in the Australia/New Zealand region, LRG is proud to present René Magritte: The Revealing Image, Photos and Films in collaboration with The Magritte Foundation Belgium.

René Magritte: The Revealing Image, Photos and Films will consist of 132 original photographs and eight films by Magritte, this signature 20th-century artist, not seen in Australia before.

The photographs and films of René Magritte were discovered in the mid-1970s, more than ten years after the painter’s death.  They not only give us rare access to an informal Magritte and those people close to him; their discovery has led to an examination of the close relationship Magritte maintained with photography and film – these ‘other images’ he executed or posed for.

His affinity for the mediums of photography and cinema, and the role he assigned to them in his painting will be opened up to the visitor across four gallery spaces; across the complete top floor, of LRG.

An award winning cabaret tale of the legendary French star, Edith Piaf

Direct from critically acclaimed seasons at Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Adelaide Cabaret Festival, winner Best Cabaret Adelaide Fringe 2016 and nominated for a Helpmann Academy, Exposing Edith charts the tragic life of arguably the greatest French singer of all time, Edith Piaf.

Experience her life, loves and losses through the songs that shot her to stardom including La Vie en Rose, Milord and Non, je ne regrette rien.  Created and performed by Michaela Burger [vocals] and Greg Wain [guitar], Exposing Edith is a stunning mix of authentic French chanson and contemporary sounds.  Having explored the undertones of Piaf's vocals and lyrics, Burger and Wain have created their own unique interpretations of Piaf’s work, using voice and acoustic guitar and the subtle use of loop, delay and effect pedals.

The songs are punctuated with a collection of extraordinary stories of Piaf’s life which are recounted by Burger, who also takes on a multitude of key characters, from Edith’s half-sister Momone, to several of her lovers and, of course, Edith Piaf herself.
