AUSTRALIAN COLLECTION: COLLECTION CONSTELLATIONS TALK
1.30PM Wed 25 Oct 2017
QAG | Josephine Ulrick & Win Schubert Galleries | Free
In this ongoing series, hear from local contemporary artists as they draw connections between two chosen artworks in the Australian collection display, weaving an idiosyncratic narrative of influence and connection. In the first instalment, coinciding with International Artists Day, hear from Brisbane artist Sam Cranstoun.
Sam Cranstoun's multidisciplinary practice combines various forms of research with a wide array of media to create work that investigates different systems of representation. His work regularly focuses on historical figures and events as a way of exploring how history is shaped, how it functions and how we as spectators rely on different visual systems as a way of understanding the past.
