CURATOR FORUM | What To Do When Things Get Rough

Thursday 20 October, 6 – 7.30pm | TICKETED EVENT

Join AGWA Curator of Contemporary Design and International Art, Robert Cook, Curator of the Cruther’s Collection of Women’s Art at the University of Western Australia, Gemma Weston, and PICA Acting Curator Andrew Varano as they each provide their own readings of Justene William’s visually expansive and referentially rich exhibition The Curtain Breathed Deeply.

Working against the idea of singular and definitive interpretations, each speaker will give their own varied takes on the exhibition, traversing through art history, feminism, popular culture and childhood memory as well as the body and materials, patterns and sensation.
