Contemporary Sculptural Practices

Art Programme ran a 6-week course on contemporary sculptural practice (considered in its expanded form to include not only objects but installations, texts, films, paintings, etc.). Guests :

  • Susan Jacobs: April 04
  • Dan Arps: April 11
  • Nabilah Norden: April 18

Mid Break: April 25

  • Elizabeth Presa: May 02
  • Emily Floyd: May 09
  • Nicholas Mangan: May 16

Across the course, we questioned whether art in the 21st century had a continued political role to play; what it means to make objects in the climate crisis; and what art would look like if it were solely produced for a commercial market. Readings for discussion were drawn from philosophy, poetry, literature, film, music, or other disciplines.

Art Programme operates on the unceded lands of the Wurundjeri of the Kulin Alliance and acknowledges and pays respect to their Elders past and present.

We offer our ongoing support for the Victorian State Government's Treaty process and for Yarra City’s working group who is implementing the Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) for the Council.
