Simon Lawrie, Balnaves Curator of Australian Sculpture, McClelland Sculpture Park + Gallery
Simon Lawrie will explore the curatorial, aesthetic and socio-political aspects of Australian public sculpture.
Public sculpture in Australia has often been met with misunderstanding or controversy. It is largely resisted by art history and criticism, and while the curatorial process is marked by constraint and collaboration, sculpture in the public realm can provide opportunities for art to engage communities and audiences otherwise unfamiliar to the museum or gallery.
Dr Greer Honeywill, Artist
Dr Greer Honeywill will present about aspects of exhibiting artworks drawing on her personal experience. In the process, works arising from her studio exploration of the theatre of the domestic, the poetry of the ordinary and domestic architecture, will be revealed in various galleries.
Christine Morrow, Curator
Christine Morrow will address the unique challenges of curating sculpture as a specific medium in ways that may have practical applications for galleries. She will share some insights on her curatorial research, selection and planning processes on curating sculptural exhibitions.
John Stafford, Director, Creative Move will moderate the panel discussion
