Arts & Culture

Find Your Perspective.

There’s a rumour that we’re not a very “artsy” place. Good thing it’s just a rumour. Galleries, theatre groups, nostalgia museums, sculpture festivals and indigenous performances just brush the surface of a cultural canvas that goes far deeper. As they say – art is purely a matter of perspective after all.

    McCubbin to Smart: Australian Painting

    Spanning over 100 years of Australian painting, McCubbin to Smart celebrates some of the country’s most recognised 19th and 20th century artists, drawn from the significant collection of the Jreissati family. Find inspiration, and maybe even a little recognition, as you explore the continuities and shifts in landscape, still life and figurative art from the turn of the century to the era of free experimentation. McCubbin to Smart reflects on how the impact of living in this incredible country has led to ever-expanding modes of expression, and how artists have recorded the world around them. HOTA would like to acknowledge the contribution of the Jreissati family to this exhibition and their generous support. Presented by HOTA, Home of the Arts

    Jimmy Carr Live at The Star

    Star of the UK’s most streamed Netflix comedy special of 2021, Jimmy is back on the road with brand new material for 2023 and is bringing his latest show, Terribly Funny, to The Star Gold Coast on Friday February 3. Jimmy’s show contains jokes about all kinds of terrible things. Terrible things that might have affected you or people you know and love. But they’re just jokes – they are not the terrible things. Having political correctness at a comedy show is like having health and safety at a rodeo. Now you’ve been warned, buy a ticket. There are two terribly funny times to choose from, with shows running at 7:00 pm and 9:45 pm. Unsurprisingly, there are only a few tickets left – grab yours online from Ticketek today.
