Legacy: Director Alain Resnais
Alain Resnais has just passed away. Since the ’40s, the French New Wave director (in the same class as Godard and Truffaut) engaged in exploring confused memory, imagination and troubled pasts, as well as controversial political and historical events like the Holocaust (in Night and Fog) and the Algerian War (in Muriel).

Ten Things I Hate with Gordon Holden
I simply asked Gordon for ten things that he hates. Being the artist that he is, he way over-explained himself and got all philosophical and managed to talk about himself too a whole bunch in the process.
There were people, watching people, viewing paintings, inspired by people watching. James Ettelson’s exhibition on the subject launched on Wednesday at Arthouse Gallery, Sydney. The Kirin Cider was flowing, beats filled the room and potential subjects spilled out onto the sidewalk. Don’t worry if you missed it, James’ work is on display until 22 March….

If you’re looking for something worthwhile to do in Melbourne tonight, look no further than Hobart-based artist Tom O’hern’s exhibition at Purgatory Artspace, presented by Blackartprojects.
