THE NATIONAL: NEW AUSTRALIAN ART 2017

All I Have Are Dreams of You - Claudia Nicholson
Saturday 1 April 4:30pm

Claudia Nicholson creates an alfombra de aserrín as a memorial to the Latina pop star Selena Quintanilla, whose dedicated community of fans were mobilised by grief following her murder in 1995. A day after Selena Day (31 March), Nicholson’s memorial will be animated by a tribute performance that will begin with Amanecer, an Andean folklore group comprised of teenagers, performing Selena’s hits and will conclude with Latin American dancers performing over the alfombra de aserrín, echoing the ceremonial rituals that take place in Guatemala during Semana Santa, Holy Week.
