A night of shared journeys and encounters, PACT Centre for Emerging Artists will present a captivating evening of art, performance, sound and dance in PACT Salon: The Wild Things on Saturday 4 August 2018.
Curated by James Nguyen and Digby Webster, The Wild Things will explore the diversity of our experiences, imaginations and fantasies. Some of Sydney’s most daring emerging artists will act as guides and lead the audience into a world of strange creatures and things, complete with performance, visuals, light and sounds.
“We are creating the biggest bush doof this side of Erskineville and we’ve got some amazing artists that need to be seen,” said Nguyen and Webster. “Join us and get wild with The Wild Things at PACT.”
Nguyen and Webster are well known Sydney-based artists. Nguyen, who works in documentary practice, installation and performance, has had his work exhibited in multiple galleries both locally and internationally. Webster is known for his bold and colourful oil pastel and ink work, and is a founding member of contemporary performance group, Ruckus Ensemble.
