Shepparton Art Museum’s summer exhibition opens tonight with a special sound-art performance including local singers at the Eastbank gallery on Welsford St.
Greater Shepparton City Council Mayor Dinny Adem and SAM director, Dr Rebecca Coates, will open Cover Versions: Mimicry and Resistance curated by Anna Briers.
Cover Versions: Mimicry and Resistance explores ideas around mimicry and impersonation, re-performance or reiteration, as artists and collectives expand on the notion of the cover version and its subversive potential within the digital age.
Artists represented include Arthur Merric Boyd and Neil Douglas, Michael Candy, Maria Fernanda Cardoso, Marco Fusinato, Percy Grainger and Burnett Cross, Yuki Kihara, The Kingpins, LOUD + SOFT (Julian Day and Luke Jaaniste), Frédéric Nauczyciel, Soda—Jerk vs The Avalanches, Super Critical Mass, Christian Thompson, and Jemima Wyman.
Tonight’s opening is from 6pm to 8pm.
