Ju­lian Rose­feldt: Man­i­festo The head­line at­trac­tion of this ex­hi­bi­tion is an in­stal­la­tion of videos each star­ring Cate Blanchett in dif­fer­ent per­sonas, per­form­ing the em­phatic and some­times in­co­her­ent words of artis­tic man­i­festos com­posed by avant-garde move­ments in the 20th cen­tury. But there are three other works by Ju­lian Rose­feldt. The first evokes the brit­tle world of an ob­ses­sive­com­pul­sive prone to fits of de­struc­tive rage; the sec­ond is a kind of se­quel to Bunuel’s L’Age d’Or, a de­scent into a hell of moral dere­lic­tion; and the third is again an ex­plo­ration of the ob­ses­sive mind, sink­ing into a neu­rotic mael­strom of its own mak­ing. Art Gallery of NSW, Art Gallery Road, The Do­main. Tues-Mon, 10am-5pm; Weds, 10am-10pm. Ad­mis­sion free. In­quiries: 1800 679 278. Un­til Novem­ber 13.
