    Defining Moments: Popism by Judy Annear

    25/05/2020 Duración: 51min

    Popism, National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, 1982 Lecture by Judy Annear The exhibition POPISM was held at the National Gallery of Victoria in 1982. At 24 years old, recent honours graduate and founder and editor of Art & Text magazine, Paul Taylor was invited to curate an exhibition of contemporary Australian art. The NGV was usually described as ‘the bunker’ with apparently little connection to the local art scene or experimental practice. POPISM came like a bolt from the blue, hard on the heels of the first five issues of Art &Text. This lecture will discuss the exhibition and the artists (Howard Arkley, David Chesworth, Ian Cox, Juan Davila, Richard Dunn, Paul Fletcher, Maria Kozic, Robert Rooney, Jane Stevenson, The Society for Other Photography, Imants Tillers, Peter Tyndall, Jenny Watson, and Tsk Tsk Tsk), provide some background and context to the ideas and practices, and the evolution of Taylor’s thinking and working. I will trace this through Taylor’s published writings, the various reactions

    Defining Moments: Sculpturescape 1975 at Mildura by Julie Ewington

    06/09/2019 Duración: 01h11min

    Almost Anything Goes: Sculpturescape 1975 at Mildura Lecture by Julie Ewington In the 1970s Mildura became an unlikely epicentre of contemporary experimental art in Australia. Julie Ewington reflects in this lecture on the visionary leadership of Tom McCullough in staging the Mildura Sculpture Triennial, which morphed the town's Arts Centre from an exhibition of recent sculpture into a freewheeling consideration of contemporary forms that the state art museums could barely contemplate, let alone accommodate. Earth art, conceptual art, performance, feminist artists, ephemeral installations, artists living on site: Mildura commissioned and supported some of the first manifestations in a public art gallery in this country of ‘the expanded field’ of post-object art.

  • Artist Talk: Bandits Live Comfortably in the Ruins by Sean Lynch

    Artist Talk: Bandits Live Comfortably in the Ruins by Sean Lynch

    22/08/2019 Duración: 01h09min

    Bandits Live Comfortably in the Ruins by Sean Lynch Presented by the City of Melbourne Irish artist Sean Lynch visited Melbourne in August 2019 as part of a research project into creative practice in Australia, with Arts Melbourne. In this lecture Lynch speaks about his practice and recent work in terms of the public realm. Sean Lynch is interested in loose ends within stories: the lost footnotes and how to mediate their presence. The sculptures, installations, videos and publications generated in this process sway between the anecdotal and informative. Recent projects have included an exhibition of archaeological forgeries; a ‘storytelling’ installation at the Venice Biennale using sculpture and video; working with a fast food outlet now on the site of the forgotten first museum of London; cataloguing examples of vandalism and conservatism in modern art; locating remnants of the DeLorean car factory in the Atlantic Ocean; investigating alleged supernatural trees, in danger of destruction from new motorways
