Castlemaine State Festival

This year's Castlemaine State Festival (1-10 April) is a multi-arts celebration that draws on the distinctive culture of the central Victorian goldfields region.

Apart form a series of knockout shows by Rose Nolan and William Kentridge it also includes The Artists Rooms, a series of site-response works where local and international visual artists stretch the contemporary art boundaries through performance, installation, prints, film and paste-up.

Jill Orr, currently featured in MGA's Afterglow: performance art and photography is included as well as Emily Floyd, Aleks Danko and Melissa and Steven Proposch (artists and editors of TROUBLE magazine). Working from the Steven Proposch narrative, collages form the basis of Melissa Proposch's monotype etchings and collagraph paste-ups (pictured).

A parallel performance will accompany the installation by Aleks Danko Saturday 2 April 11.30am-12.30pm.

Check out the festivals website for full details.
