Public Lecture 8: Richard Bell

Richard Bell was born in 1953 in Charleville, Queensland, and is a member of the Kamilaroi, Kooma, Jiman and Gurang Gurang communities. Based in Brisbane, Richard has held numerous solo exhibitions since 1990. Bell’s work explores the complex artistic and political problems of Western, colonial and Indigenous art production. Growing out of a generation of Aboriginal activists and has remained committed to the politics of Aboriginal emancipation and self-determination. His paintings play with the practice of appropriation, often miming the pop art styles of Roy Lichtenstein and Jasper Johns or the paint drips of Jackson Pollock, while using texts that complicate the way we think about racism and race politics in Australia. In recent times his work has taken on a new international focus, critiquing Western art and civilization and the way it deals with marginal cultures. Richard Bell is represented by Milani Gallery, Brisbane.

Public Lecture 4: David Claerbout

PSM is pleased to announce a special Wednesday afternoon lecture with Belgian artist David Claerbout. Claerbout is in Sydney to exhibit at the upcoming Biennale of Sydney.

David Claerbout works in photography, video, sound and digital art, although he is best known for his large-scale video projections, which often combine moving and still images to unsettle the delineation between past and present. His earliest videos prolong the photographic moment and stop the momentum of film in order to sculpt the perception of time. In more recent works, time is articulated in a broader, more formal and panoramic way. Claerbout’s work has been featured in numerous international solo exhibitions at Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Secession, Vienna, Austria; Parasol Unit, London, UK (2012); Wiels Centre for Contemporary Art, Brussels, Belgium; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, California, USA (2011); and Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich, Germany (2010), Centre Pompidou, Paris, France (2007).

Please note the special date, time, and location for this event.
