Focusing on the work of Canberra-based artists, Art, Not Apart 2017 is a one-day festival featuring exhibitions, performance art, music, installations, site-specific interventions, film projections, dance parties and pop-up food and drink. Based around the theme ‘Shake It Up’, this year’s event explores “new perspectives in and through art” from a distinctly Canberran perspective.

This year, the festival is hosted in the NewActon precinct and the National Film and Sound Archive (NFSA). Highlights include the screening of Philipe Mora’s documentary film Monsieur Mayonnaise, while the Shake It Up exhibition takes place at Hotel Hotel’s Nishi Gallery, showcasing the work of numerous emerging and established Canberra artists. Moving into the evening, the NFSA’s 1920s hall and courtyard hosts Sound and Fury – the official adults-only performance art after-party. Directed by Chenoeh Miller, Sound and Fury is a celebration of music, theatre, dance, spoken word and live art, which Chenoeh describes as a “debaucherous kind of night”. Closing out the event, F-ck Art, Let’s Party brings together DJs, producers, interstate artists and immersive installations across two stages running until 5am.
