Casual chats

This month the Youth Collective invites photo-media artist Cherine Fahd, exhibiting in Hold still: the photographic performance, and painter Amber Boardman, finalist in this year’s Archibald Prize, to explore how contemporary portraiture subverts traditional conventions in photography and painting.

Join this discussion facilitated by the Youth Collective to delve into themes such as the shifting power dynamic between sitter and artist and how truth and reality can be altered through visual representation.

Taj Ralph was first discovered busking on the streets of Sydney by Solo from the Australian hip hop duo Horrorshow. Impressed with Taj’s voice and musical sensibility, he was featured as a vocalist on their single PUSH, which was released in late 2017. His big break came, at the age of 16, when Taj was selected as a finalist for Triple J radio’s 2017 Unearthed High competition. Since then he has independently released three tracks and his laid-back RnB sounds and jazzy guitar hooks have been recognised by online music editorials such as Purple Sneakers and The Most Radicalist. He has played shows at The Record Crate in Glebe, as well as supporting Kim Churchill, Amy Shark and Horrorshow.
