My funny valentine
Sweet comic valentine
You make me smile with my heart
Your looks are laughable
Yet you’re my favourite work of art
At 528 Hz, love is said to reach us through music.
Like the jazz standard interpreted, recorded and enriched (mainly) by numerous musicians (Fitzgerald, Sinatra, Baker), love too endures through art, contributing myth, nuance, and an evolution of form to the frequency (hopefully) of our spiritual connections.
‘A love’ can keep you making, generating. Expression manifested in clay, paint, and screen-based work, where the material and abstract meet.
Join Missing Persons for My Funny Valentine, a group show curated by Louise Klerks in collaboration with Arts Project Australia, showcasing an eclectic group of Australian and New Zealand artists engaged with love in all its forms: adoration, obsession, its pull – the maddening of it all.
Featuring Matt Arbuckle, Chris Bowes, Brigid Hanrahan, Henry Holder, Chris Mason, Esther Olsson and Daniel Pace in a spontaneous, heartfelt cuddle puddle.
Celebrate with us this 14th of February at Missing Persons’ first short-duration show of 2020.
