Symposium: The Known World

Feb 28, 2015  ·  2 min read

Posted by Sas Lyon

Prints were once the prime means of communicating information about the unknown world, but how does print production operate today? This three-day symposium will explore various strategies that contemporary print artists have adopted to make sense of our world.

Keynote address: Dr Ann Stephen, Senior Curator, University Art Gallery, The University of Sydney, will launch the symposium with a reflection on the impact of the visionary Bauhaus model on the circulation and production of prints by Australian artists who explore the spaces between present knowledge and future possibilities.

Speakers include: Chris de Rosa, Brian Robinson, Patsy Payne, Lonnie Hutchinson, Jake Holmes [Tooth and Nail], Theo Tremblay, Kate Sweetapple, Tony Kanellos and Joan Ross.
