Monash University Museum of Art (MUMA) in association with the Institute of Modern Art (IMA), Brisbane and Curatorial Practice at Monash Art Design and Architecture (MADA) are pleased to present a special illustrated lecture by visiting international artist, Céline Condorelli. Condorelli’s work is fundamentally informed by architecture, a discipline in which she holds numerous degrees, including a PhD from Goldsmiths College, London. Her broad practice often merges ideas of exhibition-making, politics, public space, fiction, discussion and installation across a variety of projects. Throughout the artist’s work there is an overarching interest in the nature of ‘support’ or ‘supporting’.
Date: Thursday 10 March 2016, 6.00-7.30pm
Venue: Village Roadshow Theatrette State Library of Victoria, Conference Centre, 179 La Trobe Street, Melbourne
FREE. Bookings required on firstname.lastname@example.org or ph. 03 9905 1618
Condorelli’s lecture is part of The Artist As…, a year-long lecture series co-presented by the IMA and Curatorial Practice at MADA. The series examines the ways artists move through the world and how that movement might involve adopting other roles to pursue a project, a position, a politic, or a practice. For any given project the artist may act as architect, as ethnographer, as archivist, as producer, as curator, as activist, as choreographer, and so on. The Artist As… also recognises that many artists come to their practice as experts in other fields, bringing with them specialist knowledge that informs and shapes their work.
Following the lecture Tara McDowell, Associate Professor and Director of Curatorial Practice at Monash University, will convene a Q&A session.
