Pop-up cinema & bar in Paddington for Art & About 2013
Art & About describes itself as "a festival of art in unusual places". It's all about tearing down the white walls that traditionally define (and confine) art's resting places. Between September 20 and October 20, we'll see sculpture in train stations, installations on washing lines and hidden photographic exhibitions that double as games. And they're just three of the 39 exhibitions that'll have Sydneysiders living, breathing and consuming art for a month.

East Sydney Creative will make its contribution via 'Escape Early on Wednesdays'. From 5pm on 25 September and 2, 9 and 16 October, the city's east side will come alive with exhibitions, installations, gigs and talks. A vital part of the action will be the transformation of the Metro Screen Studios at Paddington Town Hall into a pop-up cinema and bar, designed by Gui Andrade.

A bespoke programme of short films will feature each week, organised thematically. September 25, curated by Rich Warren, will showcase 'Subliminal Psychosis and Paranoid Perspectives', with shorts by Harmony Korine, Film Bilder and Satchmo. October 2 will be witness to a 'Lena Dunham Love In'. October 9 is titled 'Feed Me Weird Things' and October 16, curated by Craig Boreham, is named 'Prototyes'.
