Public Lecture 8: Jamie North


Our 8th invited speaker in the 2016 PSM Guest Lecture Series is Jamie North.

Jamie North combines the waste products of industry and native Australian flora and plant species to create sculptural installations that explore the simultaneous concurrence and conflict between man-made architectural structures and the biological world. Initially working with photography, North’s interest in native plants and their ability to survive in the most unlikely circumstances led him to experiment with cast concrete and the by-products of mining, using industrial materials to create poetic sculptures that become miniature landscapes; microcosms where native plants grow and regenerate, gradually reclaiming seemingly hostile environments.

This lecture, like all in the series, is free and open to the public. It takes place this Monday the 30th of May, 6.15-8pm. The location is UTS Building 6, 702-720 Harris street, level 3, room 22.

Public Lecture 3: Keg De Souza


Our third invited speaker in the 2016 PSM Guest Lecture Series is Keg De Souza.

Keg de Souza is an Australian artist working with mediums such as inflatable architecture, food, film, mapping and dialogical projects to explore the politics of space.  This investigation of social and spatial environments is influenced by her formal training in architecture and experiences of radical spaces through squatting and organising. She often creates site and situation specific projects with people, with an emphasis on knowledge exchange. Keg is a member of various collaborative groups, such as SquatSpace Artist Collective, NUCA: The Network of Un-Collectable Artists, and The Rizzeria printmaking collective and has been self-publishing her own artist’s books and zines for over 15 years under the name All Thumbs Press. Recent exhibitions include: the 5th Auckland Triennial; 15th Jakarta Biennale; and Vertical Villages at 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art, Sydney (all 2013); Temporality in Architecture, Food and Communities, Delfina Foundation, London; Temporary Spaces, Edible Places, Atlas Arts, Isle of Skye, Scotland; If There’s Something Strange In Your Neighbourhood… Ratmakan Kampung, Yogyakarta, Indonesia (all 2014); and Temporary Spaces, Edible Places: New York, AC Institute, New York (2015). Keg is currently exhibiting in the 20th Biennale of Sydney, The future is already here — its just not evenly distributed.

This lecture, like all in the series, is free and open to the public. It takes place this Monday the 18th of April, 6.15-8pm. The location is UTS Building 6, 702-720 Harris street, level 3, room 22.
