Lunch & Lecture: 'Chiharu Shiota: The Soul Trembles'
'Disquieting Beauty'

11.00AM Wed 22 Jun 2022
GOMA | Ticketed

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

Join Reuben Keehan, Curator, Contemporary Asian Art, as he introduces ‘Chiharu Shiota: The Soul Trembles’. In her catalogue essay, exhibition curator Mami Kataoka (Director, Mori Art Museum, Tokyo) suggests that Shiota’s work can be understood as an exploration of dualities: presence and absence; inside and outside; dreams and reality; life and death. This talk will unpack some of these ideas through a selection of works in the exhibition, focusing on Shiota’s balance of beauty and horror, from her formative years as a student in Japan, Australia and Germany, to the prolific cosmopolitanism of her practice today. Lecture-only tickets may be available.

$59 Members, $68 Members’ guests / Includes a glass of wine and a two-course lunch (main and dessert). Please advise any special dietary requirements at the time of booking.
