Conversations about Contemporary Art

Friday 16 December, 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.  

December Topic: Time & Place in Contemporary Art

Some artworks need to be seen in the moment. Beginning in Simon Morris’ exhibition Room of Time and looking at his work Walking Drawing (2022) this conversation will explore contemporary art that use time and place as materials. We’ll spend time in the Hancock Gallery to think through what this means for a viewer looking at examples from the contemporary and history.
