A sculptural intervention & event program


As part of the upcoming Midsumma Festival 2018, Alisha Abate's A Red Wine Cheers to the Intimacies of Industry will be at the Living Museum of the West, Bluestone Building, Pipemakers Park, Van Ness Avenue, Maribyrnong from 27 January 2018 (Opening 3-5pm on the day) with the exhibition running till 11 Feb 2018, Sat-Sun midday-5pm. Entry is free.

A sculptural intervention and event program, it responds to distinct architectural elements, revealing industrial features which have been witness to the social and cultural histories of the area. The strong focus on the concrete pipes manufactured at the site draws parallels both as a supportive architectural element hidden within the build infrastructure of Melbourne as a metaphor, for the West's forgotten figures and marginalised stories worked in the various industries that are documented in the archives of the Living Museum of the West and beyond.

The historical legacy will be translated as a kind of soft infrastructure, through a range of performances curated by Abate. Poet and dancer Adolfo Aranjuez will give a site-specific performance and Sexuality and Pleasure Educator, Euphemia Russell from I Wish You Knew will have conversations that'll bring together personal sexuality and gender reflections around what we wish; our younger selves, lovers and future lovers, loved ones, and our larger worlds knew.
