Body moving

Who: Art Gallery of Ballarat

Event Description

A sedentary lifestyle is so last season – it’s time to get off the screen and move your body. Sitting is the new smoking – it increases risk of chronic health problems and is bad for your mental health. You don’t need fancy new clothes or the latest tech accessories to move your body. You just need to spring across the floorboards like an acrobat, pick up a piece of rope and start skipping or dance like nobody’s watching. It’s not about winning or who’s the fittest – it’s about making the most of the body you’ve been given. As the Beastie Boys said in their 1998 track Body movin’:

We need body rocking not perfection

Let your back bone flip but don’t slip a disc

And let your spine unwind just take a risk

Body moving includes works from the Art Gallery of Ballarat collection by George Baldessin, John Brack, Barbara Brash, Kristin Headlam, Evelyn Syme and Fred Williams
