PIC­TURE PER­FECT

Head to the Head On Photo Fes­ti­val.

Where Sydney - - Where Now -

Aus­tralia’s premier photo fes­ti­val is on this month in Syd­ney. The 9th an­nual Head On Photo Fes­ti­val fea­tures over 100 ex­hi­bi­tions. The pro­gram is a com­bi­na­tion of ex­hi­bi­tions, talks and work­shops by both Aus­tralian and in­ter­na­tional artists. One stand­out ex­hi­bi­tion is Samantha Ever­ton’s “In­do­chine” (un­til 22 May at Art­house Gallery, 66 Mclach­lan Av­enue, Rush­cut­ters Bay), which ex­plores the in­ter­sec­tion of Western in­flu­ences and Eastern tra­di­tions. Ex­ud­ing visual luxury and vivid sen­su­al­ity, the art­works plunge the viewer into a colour-sat­u­rated dream­scape. The se­ries ex­plores the en­croach­ment of Western fash­ion within Asian cultures and the strug­gle for au­then­tic­ity amidst con­tem­po­rary in­flu­ences. Var­i­ous lo­ca­tions, 5–20 May. headon.com.au
