ALG and the Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery are pleased to present a lecture by Dr Hayley Megan French titled 'The Place of Contemporary Australian Painting' on Thursday October 26, 2017, 5.30pm at 531 Ruthven St, Toowoomba City QLD 4350.
Dr. Hayley Megan French will discuss ideas at the core of contemporary Australian painting today, driven by the questions that arise as an artist working in the unfolding discourse of the contemporary, the historical legacy of colonialism, and the unparalleled impact and influence of Aboriginal contemporary art on the Australian artworld.
French argues that with a growing knowledge of Australian colonial and postcolonial histories, contemporary Australian painting challenges us to think differently, about what we think we know, about place-making, and about our response.
