.FIFO workers criss-cross Australia.
Usually these are thought of as the fly-in fly-out gouge drones unearthing the nation's great mineral reserves.
FIFO artists are also part of this movement, especially this month. Radiohead perform in Melbourne tonight - O for a ticket - Sigur Ros in Sydney tomorrow. And so many more: the great flower of local bands in Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, all very much at large.
FIFO artists and Theatre of the Actors of Regard performers will fly-in fly-out tomorrow for various exhibitions openings. Francis Bacon at the Art Gallery of NSW; Robert Owen at Arc One (Melbourne); Peter Tyndall at Anna Schwartz Gallery (Sydney). Others will be harvesting Peter Cripps at the Institute of Modern Art (Brisbane); Robert MacPherson at Yuill/Crowley (Sydney); Geoff Lowe & A Constructed World at Ian Potter Museum of Art (Melbourne University); Lindy Lee at Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery (Sydney).
FIFOs in the know will be seeking out Mitchel Cumming's INVITE ONLY and the work of Samuel Quinteros.
