Swirling with stories of love and desire, community and protest, ‘Queer’ is a deep dive into the NGV archive that sees the titular concept as a radical position running counter to dominant norms. The collection of more than 300 pieces from antiquity to the present day includes works supressed in their time for their subversion of gender or sexual mores, as well as those that explore contemporary issues around LGBTQI+ identity such as South African artist Zanele Muholi’s acts of self-creation (pictured). Costumes by Leigh Bowery and Lizzy Gardiner’s Amex Oscars dress also feature.
What's prettier than a fragrant country garden, spilling over with blooms and packed with leafy herbs and ripening produce? See 25 artists' interpretations on the theme 'Art in the garden' along with vases by five ceramicists in which to display treasures of a pastoral plot at Country Style magazine's annual exhibition. The show will be held in collaboration with Michael Reid Murrurundi, where the grounds will also be humming with activities and talks on topics such as beekeeping, yoga and more. Book your bucolic sojourn ahead of the show's opening on March 3, 2022.
Kasane knives are honed to a superbly sharp edge in a Japanese village called Saki where they have been producing blades for nearly 800 years, including swords for Samurai warriors. Beautiful ergonomic handles in wild cherry wood and their top-secret Zero Edge technology, which retards blunting of the molybdenum vanadium stainless-steel blade, mean these lightweight, corrosion-resistant knives will be with you for life – and beyond. Available in three sizes, including a bread knife, along with professional quality garden tools at Shokunin Store.
The much-anticipated companion to the ultimate coffee-table book of 2004, Tom Ford, is also stylistically complementary with its black on white cover versus the former’s white on black.
