Maxine contributed a story about the history of synchronised dance to this special issue of the ABC Magazine! And she will be the artist member of the Science round up panel at Culture Up Late at the Australian Museum on 28 Feb!

The story behind the image on the cover of the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras 40th Anniversary Magazine that I edited for the ABC over summer... When I start...ed on the magazine I said to the designer, "let's not be too heavy-handed with rainbows and glitter." Turns out rainbows and glitter were exactly what I wanted.

There's more than one side to a story and museums aren't always the authority. Two “experts”, Maxine Kauter and Emma Flannery, are going to give you some tools to make your own meanings from what's on offer in museums.

When is a frog no longer a frog? And how do things make it into the museum's exhibitions anyway? Your tax dollars pay for these things! Don't worry, it's not bloody rocket science and we are going to show you how you can confidently find your own perspective on... any museum object, exhibition, or display anywhere, but especially the new Westpac Long Gallery of the Australian Museum (It's almost too easy).

Impress your dates! Enjoy museums again! Laugh, doubt, lie, discover!

Balderdash, fibs, malarkey and actual real historical museum methods combine with the unbelievable truth in this 20-min tour of the Westpac Long Gallery. Credible? Doubtful? Outrageous? You decide: who’s telling you stories?

Created for the Australian Museum by Museophilliac.

Every hour on the half hour 5.30, 6.30, 7.30, 8.30.

Tomorrow night we will be presenting "Tall Tales and True: from the City of Sydney Collections". The show is at Customs House Library in Circular Quay and starts at 8pm.

This show explores the slippery nature of perspective in history making. The show is officially booked out (it's free). But! I have it on good authority that if you rock up, there are some spots on the door for stragglers. Please join us!

Three objects. Three storytellers. Who is telling you stories? Inspired by the ABC’s Collectors program join three cunning tellers of tales as they give you the background of three different objects taken directly from the City of Sydney’s upcoming exhibition, 175 years in 175 objects. All claim to…
