GOMA TALKS PATRICIA PICCININI: IN OUR IMAGE

6.30PM Thu 3 May 2018
GOMA | Cinema A | Free

The lively evening discussion program GOMA Talks returns during 'Patricia Piccinini: Curious Affection'. Across two events, join special guest panellists and ABC Radio National hosts Scott Stephens (The Minefield) and Cathy Van Extel (Big Ideas) as they explore humankind's complicated relationship with the future we are creating.

In 'In our Image' hosted by Cathy Van Extel, presenter of ABC Radio National's Big Ideas, guests ponder the question: Art and culture has long been a means to grapple with humankind's complicated emotional relationship with artificial intelligence and biotechnology. What is our fascination with creatures built in our own image, and how far away are we really from the creatures we have imagined?

Guests include:

  • Upulie Divisekera, molecular biologist, science communicator and writer
  • Elizabeth Finkel, Australian science journalist, editor-in-Chief of COSMOS magazine
  • Catherine S. McMullen, screenwriter for film, television and VR
  • Jonathan Parsons, Artistic Director, curator and creative producer

GOMA Talks sessions are free and no bookings are required to attend. Please arrive before 6.30pm to secure your seat.
