Event Art and Crisis

Art and Crisis

Panel Discussion

30 January 2021
2.30–3.45pm

In an era defined by human impact on the environment and overlapping crises, is art’s poetic and critical capacity to influence change—what Elaine Scarry describes as their status as “fragments of world alteration”—being challenged or affirmed? How do artists see their work in this new era?

Join artists Kinly Grey, Warraba Weatherall, Tintin Wulia, and host and exhibition curator Tim Riley Walsh, in the second of three panel discussions engaging with key themes of the exhibition On Fire: Climate and Crisis.

Event has reached capacity. Livestream the panel discussion via Facebook here.

Guest Info
  • Kinly Grey is a Meanjin (Brisbane)-based artist who works with light, smoke, metaphysics, and feeling. Their site-specific installations reimagine ways to understand the world through sensory experience and poetics. Working in galleries and public spaces, Grey has held solo exhibitions at Metro Arts, Outer Space, and Boxcopy, in Brisbane, and The Walls, Gold Coast.

    Warraba Weatherall is a Brisbane-based installation and street artist from the Kamilaroi Nation of south-west Queensland. Weatherall has a specific interest in archival repositories and structures, and the life of cultural objects and histories within these environments. His practice critiques the legacies of colonisation, where social, economic, and political realities perpetually validate Eurocentric ideologies.

    Tintin Wulia is a Denpasar-born, Brisbane-based artist. Wulia works with video, installation, drawings, painting, sound, dance, text, performance and public interventions. Her interdisciplinary works – particularly on aspects of borders – are often participatory. Wulia has shown both nationally and internationally, including the Istanbul Biennale (2005), Moscow Biennale (2011), Sharjah Biennale (2013), and recently represented Indonesia at the 57th Venice Biennale (2017).

    Tim Riley Walsh is the curator and editor of On Fire: Climate and Crisis. Riley Walsh is an art historian, Australia Desk Editor for ArtAsiaPacific, Hong Kong, and a Post-Thesis Fellow within the School of Communication and Arts, University of Queensland, Brisbane.
