Recalling artworks: Handling images as hallucinations
Increasingly focussed on blindness as a radical critical position and as a generative principle, Fayen d’Evie’s work takes a unique approach to the experience of artworks. Her performative and participatory lecture will engage audiences in embodied readings of artworks, tactile mnemonics, and sensory recall.
Kathy Ramsey and guest speaker Marika Riley
As part of a young generation of artists and curators, Kathy and Marika speak of their practices, and tradition and innovation in the work from Warmun Arts Centre, WA.
