FOOTY FEVER

In a couple of very busy weeks for CCAS Footy Fever had a climatic opening on Friday night with some appropriately dubious behaviour (although it must be said there was no dacking and for that we can be thankful).

TIME WARP

Members’ shows might seem a bit hokey in this day and age but hey, they are fun. And a good deal was had last night, can’t begin to tell you.

UNMENTIONABLES

Those things in your grans knicker drawer probably left undiscussed are the theme and title for shows by Alycia Moffat and Claire Lenehan that opened at CCAS Manuka last night. Using twisted duct tape and various modes of drawing Alycia turns underwear or more accurately the idea of underwear into innovate, critical, intelligent and yes … amusing works […]

High above University Ave gathered some of Australia’s finest legal minds along with artists, CCAS staff and RK’s clients.
