To celebrate Mother’s Day, CCP is exploring the clandestine tales of the women behind the foundation stories, industrial boom and cultural renaissance of Chippendale. Dr. Bronwyn Hanna leads you on ‘A Female Tale’ through Sydney’s favourite cultural hotspot’s polarised past. After exploring a Catholic church where some of Chippendale’s most pious women were centred, learn about the role of Aboriginal women in urban communities in nearby Eveleigh Street, Redfern. The tour will feature a special peek into Sydney’s only licensed fetish parlour where we get to meet Mistress Scarlett herself!

Bring your mum on Saturday 13 May to celebrate the women who walked these streets before us, culminating at Crawford and Turpin’s 2012 ‘Halo’ sculpture, an exemplar of contemporary Chippendale’s creative energy and the power of two modern Chippendale women’s ingenuity.

CNWAP 2017 Winner Indigo Hanlee has arrived at Assisi


Inspiring scenes from Indigo Hanlee’s residency in Umbria, Italy


Indigo Hanlee and Michael Hill won the prize last year with their collaborative digital media project Dyeing Breath and are this year sharing a residency at Arte Studio in Assisi Italy.

Indigo let us know what she’s gotten up to at her residency so far:

"Run by Marina Serli and her family, Arte Studio Ginestrelle hosts small groups of artists and writers in a beautifully refurbished farm house in the middle of a National Park. A lot of my time has been spent exploring Mount Subasio and the sites around Assisi. The weather has also been great for painting - wild flowers (and asparagus!) have started to appear everywhere so I’ve been taking the opportunity to spend a lot of time working in both the indoor and outdoor studio spaces."

Celebrate the end of the world with Kensington Contemporary, Thursday 18 May, 6-8pm as we welcome our second exhibition from the UTS Faculty of Design - we’ll provide the wine!

We continue our exciting partnership with the Faculty with Part One of a two-part exhibition series by senior lecturers Todd McMillan and Zoë Sadokiersi. 'End Game Part I: Possible Cost of Complacency' is an exploration of signs, demise and misdirection. Their works on paper are reactions to two post-apocalyptic novels that remain alarmingly accurate in 2017; Nevile Shute's On The Beach (1957) and George Turner's The Sea and Summer(1987) – morbid stuff!

Be complacent and you’ll be sorry! Check out ‘End Game Part 1: Possible Cost of Complacency’ before its too late!

18 May- 4 June, Kensington Contemporary, 32 Kensington Street Chippendale.
