Join artist Courtney Coombs at IMA Belltower, for the tenth edition of Conversing About The Other, an ongoing series that invites discussion about the terms other, otherness, and The Other.

“Other. Otherness. The Other. Words that are used so often that they seem to no longer really hold meaning. And yet we connect with them. Disconnect with them.

I am working to better understand these terms, why I have always identified with them, how I engage with them while still remaining aware of my position(s) of privilege, and whether, while they are so often understood as negative, can they and are they embraced as a positive strategy for change?

This is an ongoing project and has been held in Brisbane, Melbourne and Los Angeles.”
—Courtney Coombs

Join Coombs for an open discussion about how these concepts and terms informed their thinking in the lead up to their current exhibition Field of Vision.

This is a free event. Register on Eventbrite here.
