Please join me: Morning Coffee @ The Potter
Art History in the Field with Susan Lowish
Join us for a morning of coffee, tea and art with Dr Susan Lowish, Lecturer in Australian Art History in the School of Culture and Communication at the University of Melbourne.
Price: Members of The Potter $8, Guests $12, Concession $10
Thursday 4 November at 10.30am for 10.45am
Dr Lowish teaches and researches across the spectrum of Indigenous and non-Indigenous art from colonial to the contemporary.
She is also involved in a number of active research projects including a new collaboration with the Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Museum, at the University of Virginia.
In her talk Susan will focus on Gunbalanya/Oenpelli in West Arnhem Land and Ernabella in South Australia. These regions are historically significant because they have yielded one of the oldest and largest collections of Aboriginal bark paintings (the Spencer Collection) and produced one of the oldest continuing Aboriginal art centres in Australia (Ernabella Arts and Crafts).
Susan seeks to map an art history of these two regions that is primarily for the respective communities but will also operate as a bridge between the fields of Australian art history and Aboriginal art.
Tea generously sponsored by Madame Flavour
Don’t miss out!
