Daniel Mudie Cunningham and UNSW Galleries Director José Da Silva discuss the complex and intimate process of working with an artist’s estate.
The discussion takes its title from Cunningham’s essay on the process of curating the posthumous survey 'Katthy Cavaliere: Loved' (Museum of Old and New Art and Carriageworks, 2015-16).
Daniel Mudie Cunningham is an artist, writer and curator based in Sydney and currently Director, Programs at Carriageworks.
Presented in conjunction with Debra Porch: Art Should Make Life More Interesting Than Art at UNSW Galleries, 21 June – 7 September 2019.
The work of Debra Porch (1954–2017) explores the potency of memory and its ability to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary. After establishing a career in printmaking, Porch began working with installations incorporating textiles, video, and electroplated objects. As a posthumous survey, the exhibition acknowledges the impossibility of recreating Porch’s installations that were often arranged by the artist in situ.
