Pope Head: The Secret Life of Francis Bacon
Hares & Hyenas, Fitzroy / 7pm

Part of the Melbourne Fringe celebration, Pope Head: The Secret Life of Francis Bacon, written and performed by Garry Roost, Directed by Paul Garnault is a dark comedic drama exploring the life, art, sexuality, psyche and philosophies of the great artist, Francis Bacon. Caught wearing his mother’s stockings and banished from the family home. We follow the struggle of the young artist who eventually finds that success goes hand-in-hand with tragedy when you are determined to live life to the full. The Francis Bacon Estate has endorsed the play with high praise.
If you can’t make tonight, you also have one last chance to catch it tomorrow.

Baden: The Lost Australian Landscape Artist
Lulu Cafe & Gallery, North Melbourne / 8am – 4pm

Baden Johnson brings the Australian landscape into urban spaces at Lulu Cafe & Gallery as part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival. 

‘As we become more urbanised, I decided to produce street art in the form of spray painted landscape pasteups. I create these pasteups to remind the city dwellers of what lies beyond our ever expanding cities. These paste ups are of real places I have visited, Terang, Baxter & Tynong to name a few locations. As an artist I want to continue the Australian landscape tradition. But I want to bring it into a 21st century context, by placing my work in the street art laneways throughout inner city Melbourne. Including Hosier, AC/DC, Rankins & Tattersalls Lane ways. Bollart in Bourke St Mall & Vic Market. Fitzroy, Collingwood, North Melbourne, St Kilda & Balaclava. This exhibition is of a group of paintings that has inspired my street art. A map will be available of where some of my paste ups are located, around Melbourne. All paintings are for sale’.
Baden: The Lost Australian Landscape Artist, is running until 1st October, so if you can’t make Tuesday or another night this week, free up some time for this highly recommended exhibition.
