WELCOME to another

INSPIRING YEAR at the

GLASSHOUSE!

To be capable, it is to have a mind of many wonders

– unknown Tasmanian student, early 1980s In a world where the only constant is change, we must equip ourselves and the next generation with minds that can instinctively navigate and adapt. And what better way to do so than with a creative education program that equips young minds to not just wonder at, but to also wonder about, the ever-changing world around us. The 2016 World Economic Forum report predicted that the skills required for the fourth industrial revolution will be complex problem-solving, critical thinking and creativity, alongside emotional intelligence and cognitive flexibility. That is precisely what the Education @ the Glasshouse Program aims to do every year through the provision of a wide range of creative learning experiences. Whether it’s a future artist, engineer, programmer or manager, we seek to inspire the development of flexible minds that are full of wonder, curiosity and empathy for the world around us. So come and spend some time with us in 2019, together let’s forge creative minds who can wonder at the world, seek innovative solutions to complex problems and take us into the future.

Set in a country pub, the lives of our landlord and landlady have literally become their work. They met as children outside the pub, were engaged in the pub, had their wedding reception in the pub, and eventually bought the pub. Over the years they have served every type - and you're about to meet them. They all have their own story to tell.

As various members of the local community pull up a stool and let us into their lives it becomes clear that Two is essentially about relationships, and none is more fascinating than that of our landlord and landlady. How will their story end?

Actors Brian Meegan and Kate Raison are both excellent, playing diverse characters with precise timing and considerable nuance. Australian Stage Online

JOHN MAWURNDJUL:

I AM THE OLD AND THE NEW John Mawurndjul AM (born 1952, Kubukkan near Marrkolidjban, western Arnhem Land, Northern Territory, Australia) is celebrated for his mastery of rarrk (crosshatching) and his depiction of djang (sacred sites and totemic emblems), a tradition shared by generations of Kuninjku artists. The artist has led the development of this exhibition, which describes in Kuninjku (and English) his places of special cultural significance known as kunred, as well as the sacred places and spirits – or djang – that resurface time and time again in his artmaking. We also encounter the animals and spirit beings that populate these locations including female water spirits (yawkyawk), rainbow serpents (ngalyod) and mischievous mimih spirits. This exhibition was developed and co-presented by the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA) and Art Gallery of South Australia (AGSA), in association with Maningrida Arts & Culture. The touring exhibition, which is organised by the MCA, includes over 50 works, spanning forty years of the artist's practice.

Roald Dahl’s The Twits is a comedy of rebellion and justice in which Muggle-Wump the monkey races to outwit Mr and Mrs Twit, two of most terrible and disgusting people ever to have lived. Playfulness and tricks are more successful

than following the rules in this classic Roald Dahl story, making it fantastically well suited to the world of puppet theatre.

Hugely appealing to children (and teachers!) with its promise of fun and ‘silliness’, this story also champions the kindhearted and features an underlying warm sentiment. The work encourages exploration of language and character, builds emotional intelligence and encourages critical thinking.

OBSESSED: COMPELLED TO MAKE ADC ON TOUR: AN AUSTRALIAN DESIGN CENTRE NATIONAL TOURING EXHIBITION

What compels a maker to create? Why this technique or material? Why that concept? How does the mind of a maker work? A major touring exhibition from the Australian Design Centre, Obsessed: Compelled to make explores the stories of 14 Australian artists – stories that are at the same time unique and yet contain the frustrations and highpoints of a life of creative work that all of us can relate to, whether we are a professional artist, designer, craftsperson or hobbyist. Gabriella Bisetto, Lorraine Connelly-Northey, Honor Freeman, Jon Goulder, Kath Inglis, Laura McCusker, Elliat Rich and James B Young (Elbowrkshp), Kate Rohde, Oliver Smith, Vipoo Srivilasa, Tjunkaya Tapaya, Louise Weaver, Liz Williamson. 26

The focus of this exhibition is not just on the works themselves but on what drives the making process itself. The exhibition seeks to highlight why making is important to us, how we make, what motivates us to make and why more of us are making than ever before. These makers have been chosen from across the spectrum of making – textiles, ceramics, furniture, metalwork, jewellery, conceptual art, glass blowing and sculptural weaving. The exhibition is accompanied by an education pack, a series of films and a full-length catalogue.

Bell Shakespeare’s

MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING By William Shakespeare Director James Evans Claudio and Hero are deeply in love. Beatrice and Benedick would rather swap sassy insults than sweet nothings. Much Ado About Nothing is a saucy and razor-sharp battle of wits between the bickering Beatrice and Benedick, who wield words as weapons, their banter betraying their love for each other. Claudio however is quickly consumed by envy and his idyllic world threatens to come tumbling down as he humiliates Hero. Beatrice and Benedick must join forces to defend true love – even if they can’t recognise it in themselves. But will truth and honesty win the day, and does love really conquer all? Much Ado About Nothing will be a powerful exploration of the struggle for identity and self-knowledge in a male-dominated world. The pursuit of love is framed in a social context that enhances the darker themes in this timeless comic gem. Much Ado About Nothing is one of Shakespeare’s contemporary comedies where romance is thwarted by dastardly plots, misinformation, false accusations, broken promises, and bumbling cops. Or is it?

This project has been assisted by the Australiangovernment through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.

AN AUSTRALIAN WAR MEMORIAL TOURING EXHIBITION Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have a long-standing tradition of fighting for Country, and continue to serve with honour among our military forces. They have also worked in ancillary, industry, and other home-front activities, and their communities have been thrust into the front line of theatres of war. The touring exhibition For Country, for Nation highlights these stories and explores themes of remembrance and tradition through family histories, objects, art, and photographs from across Australia, drawing inspiration from cultural traditions and symbols of warrior’s discipline, knowledge, leadership, and skill. For Country, for Nation is thematic in structure. Within each theme are stories of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander experience during wartime and peace.

Our Monday Tours are conducted by our Glasshouse Gallery educators. The Gallery is closed to the public on Mondays, which means you can have a more personalised experience in a quiet and relaxed setting. Our skilled educators will give a more in-depth insight into the exhibitions, arts theory, as well as interactive age-specific exercises. Suitable for all ages.
