How do we tell the story of what it is to be human? It’s a question that every age and every culture has addressed. And where better for an artist to begin such an exploration than with the human figure itself.

From the imprint of a hand in the earliest cave paintings to 21st century digital modelling, the depictions of ourselves, our loved ones, our enemies, our gods and goddesses, are arguably the most eloquent illustration of the human condition.

In 2019, the Society’s Art Appreciation lecture series will study how we look at ourselves and in what ways. With the nude we embody physical beauty and human frailty: the ancient Greeks, Rubens, Lucian Freud. The portrait reveals personality and power: Van Dyck, Gainsborough, Picasso. Social revolution, political upheaval and protest all find expression in the human form.

Over 36 weeks, in lectures by 31 distinguished curators and art historians, Being human: the figure in art, will wrestle with one of the greatest challenges for an artist. How to show us as we are – and who we are.

The Art Gallery Society of NSW is thrilled to present the 20th anniversary season of Resonate, and we invite you to join in the celebrations.

Immerse yourself in the visual delights of the Art Gallery’s exhibition program before sitting down to experience some of the finest performers from Australia and overseas, while listening to the sublime music of the world’s greatest composers.

Songs from Turner’s vast career in musical theatre are intertwined with her amusing stories and anecdotes, whilst Castles-Onion shares stories from his stellar opera career. Composers from Cole Porter, Gershwin, Berlin, through to Sondheim, Weill, Lloyd Webber and Jacques Brel are celebrated in an intimate, evening of songs and reminiscences. Geraldine Turner was part of the very first Resonate program and is thrilled to return for our 20th anniversary.

The concert will be preceded by light refreshments and a private exhibition viewing.
Doors open at 6.30pm. Concert commences at 7.30pm.

Resonate 2019: Monsieur Cambembert

28 April 2019, 6.30pm

With sensitivity, virtuosity and astonishing energy, Triple ARIA award-winning band Monsieur Camembert brilliantly weaves Gypsy music with other world music styles, to create a truly original and irresistibly potent blend. Or as The Age put it, 'a brazen and intoxicating blend of jazz, gypsy swing, Latin and East European influences.' Monsieur Camembert has received standing ovations around the globe, with acclaimed performances at the Montreux Jazz Festival and the International Leonard Cohen Festival. 'Simply the best Gypsy band in the land! They pick you up & carry you on a wave of energy, excitement & poignancy that never relents...the band play with such cohesion, energy and abandon that I experienced an emotion so foreign I barely recognised it: elation.' (John Shand, SMH).

The concert will be preceded by light refreshments and a private exhibition viewing.
Doors open at 6.30pm. Concert commences at 7.30pm.
