Every month, LOOK invites you to the opening event of our exhibition program. The fifth instalment of the program explores the work of Micah Rustichelli and Girls in Hats. Through a convergence of sound and visual, together these artists will continue LOOK’s exhibition program which seeks to create a cooperative space for artists and DJs to expand Meanjin’s creative community and share in a stimulating experience.
Micah Rustichelli (they/them), has worked across forms of performance and visual arts since 2012. From 2016, Micah has focussed on developing their visual language and painting practice, resulting in a number of exhibitions and collections. More recently, Micah has combined their creative histories to include performance and movement-based work back into their visual arts practice. Interweaving art historical references, overt queerness, eroticism and explorations of body and self; Micah’s work is layered with meaning and use of mediums.
Girls in Hats is the DJ project of Meanjin (Brisbane) based Naomi McKenzie (she/her). Since her debut appearance in 2019, Naomi has captured Brisbane’s music scene with her vivacious and colourful presence. From meditative melodies to romping drum beats, Naomi’s ever-evolving soundscapes are delicately woven together with a love for the art of music, a dedication to the crowd, and a trademark delivery which is playful and contagious. After a break from the scene, a keenness for future opportunities and the launch of her gorgeous podcast, Fur Radio, mark her return.
