Khadija von Zinnenburg Carroll: Art in the Time of Colony
15 October 2016
Artist, art historian, and Professor of Global Art at Birmingham University, Khadija von Zinnenburg Carroll launches the paperback edition of Art in the Time of Colony at the IMA. She will be in conversation with Dr Amelia Barikin, Lecturer in Art History at the University of Queensland.
Art in the Time of Colony examines the politics of material culture; reclaiming Aboriginal objects as art, rather than anthropology. It revisits the nineteenth century colonial period to view the influence of Aboriginal cultural practice on the classification of scientific, legal and artistic objects –– rethinking art criticism.
This paperback edition is available during the launch for the special price of $38.50 (50% off RRP).
