Lunch & Lecture: 'APT10: Part 5'

11.00AM Wed 30 Mar 2022
GOMA | GOMA Restaurant, Cinema A | Booked Out

Delve deeper into QAGOMA exhibitions and displays at our monthly Members lecture then catch up with friends over a two-course lunch in the GOMA Restaurant.

Join Indigenous Australian Art Curators Katina Davidson, Sophia Sambono and curator of Indigenous Fibre Art, Diane Moon to hear about their diverse APT10 projects with artists Gordon Hookey, Grace Lillian Lee’s collaboration with Dr Ken Thaiday Snr, and the Macassan/Yolngu Project.

Hear how these projects have gone on to have an impact across wider communities — whether it’s the mammoth paintings by Hookey where he has taken it upon himself to cheekily ‘fill the blanks’ between widely known histories of Australia, in an aim to educate future generations by writing cultural heroes into history books; the importance of inter-generational knowledge sharing and collaboration with Meriam Mer artists Lee and Thaiday Snr whose Suggoo Pennise project brings together Lee’s woven octopus (suggoo) form and Thaiday Snr’s carved wood fish trap (pennise) dhari in a larger than life kinetic sculpture embodied withgenerations of kustom and performance traditions; to the latest in centuries-long sea-faring exchange between the Yolngu artists of Arnhem Land and Macassan artists of Sulawesi from the Indonesian archipelago who revisit traditional forms in contemporary makings and explore an evolving narrative through performance art; etched metal work; batik and a joint project of hand painted ceramics.

Bookings essential, places are limited. Lecture only tickets may be available, free for Members / $10 Member’s guests.
$59 Members / $68 Members’ guests / Includes a glass of wine and a two-course lunch (main and dessert), followed by tea or coffee.
