10 AM – 7 PM
MONDAY 16 OCTOBER 2017
Interested postgraduate students, early-career researchers and academics from universities throughout Australasia are invited to attend and contribute to a dynamic dialogue on art practice as framed through Richter’s example.
This postgraduate symposium focuses on practice-based research, and provides an opportunity to meet and hear from distinguished artists working at the nexus of practical and theoretical approaches to contemporary painting. Speakers will use their own research and practice-based methodologies as case studies in shaping this discussion.
The symposium is organised around two central themes and, as Richter’s practice so ably demonstrates, the play between oppositions: abstract versus figurative; conceptual versus craft-based; painting versus photography—is the most fruitful means towards analysis and discussion.
CO-CONVENORS: DR JULIE FRAGAR, ANGELA GODDARD AND DR ROSEMARY HAWKER
