    Ashkal Alwan is pleased to invite you to a public talk by G. H. Rabbath at Home Workspace. This talk aims to answer the question: how can one relate to contemporary art production without acknowledging the artist's ontological difference with respect to the viewer? This talk is the sum of recent interactions with art professionals, and art theoretical considerations in the form of an ongoing narrative. Note: The video is muted for the better part. You can follow the text on http://rewriting.me/ where it reads : "The following text has been written for this space..." G. H. Rabbath teaches cognitive science and contemporary art theory at Saint-Joseph University in Beirut.

    • 7.29.12 - Do The Work of an Evangelist

      This week Pastor Kevin continues in the series on Discipleship with a challenge to do the work of an evangelist, just as the Apostle Paul, as he was passing from this world charged Timothy with. We see from scripture that evangelism is not only for those who are "gifted" or for missionaries and pastors--rather it is a commission for all of us. We must 1) PRAY for a burden for the lost; 2) PREPARE for the opportunities that the Holy Spirit will give us to share our faith; and 3) we must PARTICIPATE in the world around us and build relationships that will bring Christ (in us) into the community.

          FASHION PEOPLE is a participatory project conceived and directed by Ricarda Bigolin & Adele Varcoe. FASHION PEOPLE aims to mix the roles associated with members of a fashion system, taking fashion to the people and inviting collaboration in all parts of the process. The first FASHION PEOPLE event was all about the BROWS. Held at The London Fashion Colloquia in September 2011, FASHION PEOPLE collaborated with 20 Melbourne designers who were invited to create two sets of brows that reflected their design practice. The brows were shipped over to London to be presented at the London Fashion Colloquia as the BROW WOW WOW 2011 catwalk fashion show. People at the Colloquia were given a coloured sticker that indicated a role that they would play in the making of a catwalk fashion show. 30 people received a yellow sticker which indicated 'model'. 4 received a green sticker which indicated 'photographer' and 5 received a red sticker which indicated 'fashion critic'. Together the roles came together to present the BROW WOW WOW 2011 catwalk fashion show! MELBOURNE BROW DESIGNERS: Anna McLaren, Hannah Chamely, Tania Splawa- Neyman, Pia Interlandi, Sanya Pahoki, Naomi Raggatt, Pagent, Rose Megirian, Joanna Henning, Ricarda Bigolin, Adele Varcoe, Liam Revell, Tori Nimmervoll, Cassandra Wheat, Simon Browne, Simone Agius, Mick and Feride Peel, Hugh Westland, Tarryn Handcock, Blake Barnes, Madeline Stagg and Kieran Barney ALL GRAPHICS DESIGNED BY Simon Browne PHOTOGRAPHY BY Panos Damaskinidis CAMERA Chris Ralls EDITING Christo Crocker
