Event description

Description

Writer, curator, and researcher Mariam Arcilla, along with her friends, will present an evening of performance riffing on the word SKIRT.

SKIRT features artists, writers, and musicians whose practices ‘skirt around’ art-form conventions to shape new approaches for sound, visuals, taste, words, and fashion.

To begin the evening, Arcilla invites you to drink a concoction created around the theme of secrets. You can decipher its contents through a home-made alphabet code. Michelle Xen and Shane Rudken will perform an IMA-exclusive live electronica set that is a juncture between experimental sound, light, visceral synthetic textures, and deconstructed pop. Skullgrabber will present a two-course menu of electronic emulsion that is part analogue noise, home economics, and chakra-shaking sounds. Acting as ‘skirts for the neck and ears’, pieces by Brisbane-based jeweller Bianca Mavrick will be adorning the performers. At the end of the evening, you’re invited to take home words from writers Emily McGuire, Danni Zuvela, and Arcilla.
