GOMA Talks: Can Art Save Us?

7.00PM Thu 22 Sep 2022
GOMA | Cinema A | Free

From a never-ending global pandemic, to natural disasters and war, have these 'unprecedented times' left you feeling flat? In a world where nothing seems certain, art continues to provide joy and solace for viewers and makers alike.

Many of us have turned to arts and culture for comfort and distraction in the last few hellish years, from binge watching TV to listening to music. So, this begs the questions: Can art save us? Does art heal us? And what does this tell us about art and cultures place in society?

Hosted by Paul Barclay, ABC Radio National’s Big Ideas.

More details announced in August 2022. Free, no bookings required.

Presented during ‘The Soul Trembles’, in partnership with ABC Radio National.

Exhibition organized by the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art and Mori Art Museum, Tokyo. Curator: Mami Kataoka, Director of Mori Art Museum, Tokyo
