The Weekend Neos Kosmos : 30 July 2016
WHAT’S 10 THE WEEKEND NEOS KOSMOS | SATURDAY 30 JULY 2016 On DIGITAL.NEOSKOSMOS.COM VIC JAYNE DYER EXHIBITION SHARPNESS The newly renovated Anna Pappas Gallery (2-4 Carlton Street, Prahran) is now showing the latest exhibition by Jayne Dyer entitled ‘Sharpness’, a continuation of the artist’s investigation into imminent states of collapse through a series of small-scale candy-coloured objects. Corporeal tensions are implicit in these abject forms. Behaving like bodily matter - clinging to shelves, spilling onto the gallery floor - they appear delicate and beautiful, while also familiar and visibly uncomfortable. Are these fleshy malformed objects prototypes of our future DNA? The exhibition runs until Saturday 27 August (Tues to Fri: 10 am - 6 pm; Sat: 12 - 6pm). For further information or a price list, email email@example.com, visit www.annapappasgallery.com, or call (03) 9521 7300. GEORGE DIMARELOS’ COMEDY SHOW: GEORGE & CO Following sellout shows with rave reviews at the 2016 Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Melbourneborn and raised comedian George Dimarelos is bringing his show George & Co (The Solo Tour) to The Greek Centre (168 Lonsdale Street, Melbourne) tonight, Saturday 30 July. Audience members can look forward to having everything they once believed ripped apart in front of their very eyes. But on the plus side it’s a show proven to make you taller and more attractive to the opposite sex. As if that doesn’t have you intrigued! Suitable for audiences 13⁺, the show commences at 7.15 pm. Tickets $20 full | $18 Greek Community premium members. To purchase, visit www.trybooking.com/212649.

Coedited by authors Maria Katsonis and Lee Kofman, each entry shares intimate and touching incidents of rebellion and independence. As they defy the expectations of their parents and society to find a place of their own in the world, the contributors expose a little rebellious part of themselves ranging from getting caught in seedy nightclubs, to lifelong family conflicts, and marrying too young. Attendance is free. To RSVP email: email@example.com REBETIKO FESTIVAL Pieces from artist Jayne Dyer’s exhibition ‘Sharpness’.
