We’re taking last minute bookings for an exciting online, artist-led event THIS Friday night with Jacqui Stockdale.
Jacqui will begin by introducing her exhibition The Long Shot currently on show at Linden.
Not sure what that is? That’s ok, because we made it up…
But here’s the twist… It’s also a Cyber Masquerade!
We invite you to wear a mask to the talk; ready-made or your own creation. You are also welcome to attend unmasked, it’s up to you!
Inspired by the colourful costumes that adorn the figures in Stockdale’s exhibition, many of the masks used in the works are sourced from the artist’s collection. In the exhibition, some of the masks are hand-made and others are from Mexico, Guatemala and China. The artist’s research and inspiration stems from films on Ned Kelly, The Mexican Day of the Dead, burlesque costumes and equestrian monuments.
On Friday 19 June at 6PM, Stockdale will welcome you to her online party with an artist talk about the costumes in her exhibition followed by the best mask awards.
There will be three awards for those who have joined with mask creations;
Judged by the artist Jacqui Stockdale – the Best Re-imagined Ned Kelly Mask
Judged by our Curator Juliette Hanson – the Most Creative Mask
And judged by you, the guests – the Most Popular Mask.
Please note: you don’t have to wear a mask to join this artist talk.
