Cultural things around Melbourne we’re keen to do and see

We started one post for today, then realised we had to wait for more information, then we started ANOTHER post, but it was food-related and we both had bad experiences with lunch.

So here’s TAKE THREE, museum and gallery exhibitions which intrigue us, and other cultural thingos we’re looking forward to.

On Gunaikurnai Country: Gippsland Aboriginal Elders, leaders and artists – a free photographic exhibit at the State Library of Victoria, with portraits by Angela Lynkushka.

Van Gogh and the Seasons – Van Gogh at the NGV? Why, yes, don’t mind if I do! AND THEN: Hokusai also at NGV!

Han Dynasty: Life Everlasting – Oh, Chinese Museum, you always know how to make me happy.

Chinese Fortunes in Colonial Australia – This looks like it’s worth going out to Ballarat for! Hmm, when is my next free weekend…?

Xiu Xiu plays the music of Twin Peaks – FRANKLY you’re lucky this is the only Twin Peaks thing I’m linking to.

Stories from Detention at Immigration Museum. I will probably cry, FYI.

Still at NGV, but this time the one at Fed Square: Patrick Pound, The Great Exhibition. Stephanie went to this by accident last week and loved it so much she bought the exhibition book AND is trying to convince various friends of No Award to go with her.

Tell us what you’re looking forward to! Don’t limit it to Melbourne.
