The Artist As…
22 February 2016
The Artist As… is a year-long lecture series co-presented by the IMA, Brisbane, and Curatorial Practice at MADA (Monash Art Design and Architecture), Melbourne.
The series examines the ways artists move through the world, and how that movement might involve adopting other roles to pursue a project, a position, a politics, or a practice. For any given project the artist may act as architect, as ethnographer, as archivist, as producer, as curator, as activist, as choreographer, and so on. The Artist As… also recognises that many artists come to their practice as experts in other fields, bringing with them specialist knowledge that informs and shapes their work.
