Forum: Contemporary Australian artists abroad - Then and now

Forum: Contemporary Australian artists abroad – Then and now
Saturday 15 June, 1.30 – 4.30pm

In the spirit of the artists featured in the Australian Impressionists in France exhibition who went to Paris in search of their dreams, this forum will explore the idea of the contemporary Australian artist living abroad with the view to establishing themselves internationally and the more contemporary notion of the ‘global artist’.

Speakers include Elena Taylor, Curator of Australian Art, NGV; Elizabeth Grierson, Professor of Art and Philosophy at RMIT University; Melissa Loughnan, Director, Utopian Slumps; and Jenny Watson, artist.

Free, bookings recommended.
