Come Spend an Afternoon at Paul’s


Enigmatic singer-songwriter Paul Kelly is hard to condense down into a single, definitive description.

The 63-year-old musician’s cross-generational relevance means that he’s not only soundtracked the lives of your parents and grandparents, but ours too. A 44-year career blasting his poignant lyrics into the homes of all Australians has given him a lot to talk about, and he recently invited the talented team comprised of filmmaker Izrayl Brinsdon, photographer Jake Mein, illustrator Marcus Dixon and Pass~Port founder Trent Evans into his home for an afternoon to document it all.

The result was an intimate look at the world of Kelly, captured in film, photo, illustration and sound, coming to COMMUNE in Sydney for a one night only exhibition that will see the first ever viewing of the 16mm film of the professional gravy maker, songwriter, and national treasure. If that wasn’t enough to get you down to the exhibition, all proceeds from sales on the night will go towards funding for a skateboarding facility in the Bidyadanga Aboriginal community, along with new boards.

RSVP for An Afternoon at Paul’s, going down on Friday October 12 at COMMUNE Sydney, right here.
