Sisters hit the long and winding

Skyhooks and AC/DC to Talking
Heads. Winners of the Melbourne
Age Critics’ Award at Melbourne
International Comedy Festival 2004,
and a recent Green Room Award
for Best Cabaret Ensemble and MO
Award Nomination, The Kransky
Sisters are an absolute must see.

Emerging Sydney documentary
photographers Jacq Sherry and
Georgina Lampe explore social
and psychological displacement
in urban culture in their exhibition
‘Displaced’. Sherry documents
inner city indigenous transient
and homeless communities with
engaging portraiture, revealing
the vulnerability, warmth and
fragility of these urban tribes.
“The community does not readily
embrace Aboriginal people
with no fixed address, and we
are more comfortable with
Aboriginal homelessness and social
displacement when it’s invisible,”
notes Sherry, whose work ‘Untitled’
is featured in the exhibition. March
4 - April 1, Blanco Negro 72b
Fitzroy St Surry Hills.
