FEB 28: ANOTHER VIEW During this very special evening presented as part of Sydney Mardi Gras, LGBTQI artists explore new museum perspectives through performance, tours and happenings. • Live Music: Lady Sings It BetterMaeve Marsden and Libby Wood have spent 7 years touring the country (and the world) with their particular brand of dry-witted, fiercely feminist cabaret. The two have been described as "comic cabaret gold" (The Scotsman), "proud and unapologetic, beautiful and powerful" (Time Out) and "blisteringly entertaining" (Daily Review). 6:45pm, 8pm • Live Art with Sam Leighton-DoreIllustrator (and award-winning filmmaker and writer) Sam Leighton-Dore paints visitors (including you!) live in the Australian Museum. Come by to see Sam in action, and be integrated into his cheeky artwork. • Spot Tour: Mating in the WildLearn something new on this “Mating in the Wild” tour of Wild Planet, every half-hour.
