Art Encounter

Saturday 22 October, 11.30am

Visiting an art gallery can often be an overwhelming experience. From materials to meaning, what you see can be baffling and there is always more to see. Not to mention all the standing required!  

Art Encounters is here to help. In these 30-minute sessions we’ll guide you through a Gallery experience that will have you coming back for more.  

Each session will be an encounter with a single artwork. We’ll spend the time looking, examining, and exploring the elements that make the art work.  

Slow down, look, and wonder, and get to know an artwork more intimately. 

October Topic: US artist Josh Azzarella unmakes classic films by painstakingly extracting all signs of human presence through painstaking frame-by-frame digital collage. Join us as we consider the strange relationships between film, time and memory entombed in Untitled #100 (Fantasia), his spooky remake of Michael Jackson’ s 1983 music video Thriller.
