Turn on and tune in, Melbourne. NGV hosts Pirate Radio, a weekend broadcast from the Melbourne Art Book Fair with readings, reviews, music, a cavalcade of literati drop-ins, and banter with passing trade. Melbourne sound studio Liquid Architecture and Rotterdam’s De Player greets guests with performances at NGV Friday Nights; Artists Ben Landau, Jalen Lyle-Holmes and Sarah Walker interact with gallery visitors in the morning; Field Theory takes the mic on Saturday with its gonzo book club; The Good Copy hosts Sunday’s programming with a tell-a-thon about the art of writing. Visit the NGV International forecourt or stream the antics via the NGV website.
Liquid Architecture is an Australian organisation for artists working with sound. Liquid Architecture investigates the sounds themselves, but also the ideas communicated about, and the meaning of, sound and listening.
Ben Landau, Jalen Lyle-Holmes and Sarah Walker work in live art, writing and performance. This is their first major collaboration.
Field Theory is a collective of six Australian artists who make, curate and support art in the public realm. Often using humour, dialogue and endurance, Field Theory construct live social events and public platforms for exchange. Their recent publication No Acting, No Admin celebrates ten years of working together.
The Good Copy is a writing school and a shop for word people. A proud team of nerds, they run workshops, sell books, and host Collingwood’s longest-running crossword club.
