Conversations about Contemporary Art

Friday 21 October, 12pm

What is contemporary art? How do you look at artworks that you are unsure even is art? How do you make sense of art, is sense even required? In this monthly tour and talk series, participants are invited to analyse and debate art, discussing delightful and curly questions along the way.   

Join us for a short, entertaining look at part of our current exhibitions followed by a conversation in our boardroom. No knowledge of art history is required. This is a tour for people even if they are not sure contemporary art is their cup of tea – followed by a cup of tea. Or coffee. And a biscuit.     

Bookings are encouraged.  


October Topic: This month for Conversations about Contemporary Art, join us for a discussion on how US artist Josh Azzarella’s work contests notions of authorship and the control of culture through remix, appropriation and erasure. Join us in the gallery boardroom for tea and biscuits as we extend the conversation to other artists exploring remix, appropriation and erasure as artistic strategies which unravel the eerie relationships between film, time and memory.
