Stuart Ringholt is one of Australia’s most fearless contemporary artists. His practice has involved leading audiences in naturist gallery tours, anger workshops, and performances that place the artist in embarrassing situations. Here Ringholt will discuss the two major new commissions for his exhibition Kraft – a monumentally scaled and temporally askew clock and Club Purple, a nude daytime disco – in the context of his expansive practice.

Date: Wednesday 9 April 2014, 12.30 – 1.30pm

Venue: Building G, G1.04, Faculty of Art Design & Architecture Lecture Theatre
