In our ongoing Arts Education feature, you’ll read about media artist George Khut in-residence at the National Portrait Gallery, his take on digital portraiture (image above) and his teaching at UNSW Art & Design; while actor and writer Jane Griffiths tells us about music theatre’s great leap forward at Monash University. We pay special tribute to Australian dance artist Philippa Cullen. As a member of Sydney’s exploratory art community from the late 60s until her death in 1975, she vigorously engaged in cross-artform performance and public dance, visited Africa and India, worked with Stockhausen in Europe and, above all, created works in which dancers triggered music via elegantly sculpted theremins. Young artists today might find inspiration in Cullen’s vision and the communal passion with which she pursued it.

SAVE SCA. Despite the University of Sydney’s decision not to proceed with the merger of Sydney College of the Arts with UNSW Art & Design, the college will be relocated from its Callan Park home to the University of Sydney and its Bachelor of Visual Arts degree does not appear in the 2017 academic calendar—a prelude to erasure? Support SCA staff and students today by attending the 1pm rally at the main campus on City Rd.
