The next Aboriginal Art Reading Group meeting will be at the Ian Potter Museum at the University of Melbourne on Tuesday, 22 May, 3:30-4:30pm in the mezzanine level room. Curator Joanna Bosse will welcome the group with an introduction to a Groote Eylandt bark painting brought from the Leonhard Adam Collection archives especially for this event by newly appointed Curator of Academic Programs, Dr Heather Gaunt.
There will be two readings for the month of May, they are Stephanie Radok, “July,” in An Opening: Twelve Love Stories about Art, Wakefield Press, Kent Town, SA, 2012, pp. 62-80, and Djon Mundine, “A personal history of Aboriginal Art,” in Kasper Konig, Emily Joyce Evans and Falk Wolf (eds.) Remembering Forward: Australian Aboriginal painting since 1960, Paul Holberton Publishing, London, 2010.
Contact me if you would like to add your email address to our electronic mailing list. I use the mailing list to specify where to locate copies of the readings. Please note that we are meeting one hour earlier than usual, and on a Tuesday instead of our regular Monday. RSVPs would be appreciated for this meeting.
