NOT DEAD YET
Collaborative works speak for voiceless
Artwork from the Not Dead Yet exhibition.
An indigenous man is forcefully led
away by two police officers. His
shoulders are slumped and his head is
down. It is just one artwork in a new
exhibition at Canberra Museum and
"It s really hard to label the tone of
someone who has been constantly
worn down," artist Therese Ritchie
said. "It s more of an unspeakable
quality. I can t describe it because it s
If you re constantly being worn
down by something, you would be any
emotion. You would be sad about it,
you would be angry about it, you
would be rebellious, you would be
drunk. You would be anything you
The piece features in Ritchie s
collaborative Not Dead Yet exhibition,
which is on display at the Canberra
Museum and Art Gallery until
September 14. The exhibition includes
screenprints, posters, drawings, photo-
graphs, digital collage works and
limited edition fine art prints and
Not Dead Yet is the result of a three-
decade collaborative partnership
between Ritchie and fellow Northern
Territory artist Chips Mackinolty. The
exhibition includes powerful and per-
suasive images of protest and propa-
ganda, and has been developed by
Anita Angel, curator of Charles
Darwin University s Art Collection
and Art Gallery.
"The collection gives voice to
people who are often voiceless," Ms
"What Therese and Chips have done
is collapse time through these images.
They have made it about the events,
the particular encounters and the
collisions that have happened."
Charged with frustration and a
desire for social change, the pieces
drip in a critical satire of a corrupt and
racially ignorant society.
"Therese and Chips aren t dealing
in fantasy. When you collapse time
through your art like that, what is the
point you re making?
That nothing has bloody changed.
We still have issues that need to be
dealt with," Angel said.
Not Dead Yet is an exhibition at
the Canberra Museum and Gallery
until September 14.
HEALTHY BRAINS AT
HEART OF DISCUSSION
The brain isn t always the first body
part that comes to mind when
thinking about physical health. The
organ will be at the forefront of Your
Brain Matters, a session about
keeping the brain healthy and
reducing the risk of developing
dementia. Your Brain Matters is on
Friday, July 11, from 2.30pm-4pm at
159 Maribyrnong Avenue, Kaleen.

Conveying the magic of Play School
has become even more fun for
presenter Rachael Coopes since
becoming a mum.
Having collected what seems like
an endless number of ideas for craft
activities and a huge repertoire of
songs, she and her 15-month-old son
Gabriel are always busy.
"For a small period of his life, I
will be the coolest mother in the
world and then I ll be the most
uncool by the time he is a high
school," she said.
Broadcast on the silver screen now
for 48 years, Coopes said Play
School continued to keep kids
transfixed by focusing on lively and
"It s not about speaking to kids,
they are they are invited to be part of
whatever we are doing in the show.
"It s such an honour to be part of
such an institution that was part of
my life growing up and so many
other Australians lives growing up."
After spending her kindergarten
years living in Rivett, Coopes said
she was thrilled to return. As with the
infamous television show, the
40-minute concert Price of Bears
will be carefully paced with familiar
songs to dance around to, as well as
quiet times to watch and listen.
Price of Bears shows in
Yarralumla from July 18-20. Tickets
from $17.60 are on sale now at
Rescuing food for people in need.

Garage rock music drips with the blues
THE BLACK KEYS / ALBUM: TURN BLUE
Black Keys frontman Dan
Auerbach performs at the recent
Glastonbury Festival in the UK.
It s not a bad theory, that is, one of
America s finest duos has been filling
a gap in the rootsy guitar and drums
For more than 10 years, Dan
Auerbach and Patrick Carney have
been delivering rusty blues, raw soul
and wicked rock.
On 2010 s Brothers, they delivered
the album of their career; retaining that
70s glam combined with some well-
With Jack and Meg retiring the
White Stripes for good, The Black
Keys have seemingly taken over by
staging their own garage rock revival.
With a pocket full of Grammys and
their star well on the rise, The Keys
can do no wrong.
New album Turn Blue is indeed
more bluesy, low-key in some points
and full of that 60s soul, but it can still
be a ramblin rockfest filled with dirty,
fuzzy riffs and glorious feedback.
Like all of the Keys albums, there
are also those detailed sounds and
ministrations that so easily jut out of
It s a credit that every song,
including the seven-minute slow-
burner Weight of Love, which opens
the album, sounds like a potential
single waiting to happen.
