Saturday July 12, from 2pm to 4pm
Janet Clayton Gallery presents an artist talk with New York based Australian artist Theresa Byrnes in conjunction with her current exhibition Sparrow Heart.
This conversation will explore Theresa’s practice and the relationship between performance and painting.
Three eminent guest panellists, including SCA’s Julie Rrap will join the discussion:
Dr Anne Marsh is Professorial Research Fellow at the Victorian College of the Arts, University of Melbourne, author of Performance Ritual Document (2014), LOOK: Contemporary Australian Photography (2010), Pat Brassington: This is Not a Photograph (2006), The Darkroom: Photography and the Theatre of Desire (2003) and Body and Self: Performance Art in Australia, 1969-1992 (1993). She is a contributing editor for Eyeline Contemporary Visual Arts and she publishes regularly in the arts press.
Art critic Martin Newman, former e-editor at The Daily Mirror, long time blogger on art and technology and media commentator on Five Live & other radio and television broadcasters, will also be on the panel. Newman has previously reviewed Theresa’s work in New York .
Julie Rrap’s involvement with body art and performance in the mid-70s in Australia influenced her practice as it expanded into photography, painting, sculpture and video. In 1995, she held a survey of her work at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne and in 2007, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney held a major retrospective of Rrap’s work titled Body Double, curated by Victoria Lynn. Rrap is represented by Roslyn Oxley 9 Gallery, Sydney and Arc One Gallery, Melbourne.
