Around the Outside #3 | Practice is Research

Around the Outside #4 | Practice is Research

Event 7.08.16, 12-4pm

Featuring: Pia Van Gelder, Marian Tubs, Astrid Lorange & Clare Powell

Come and join us for a beer and snag as the third instalment of Around the Outside 2016 explores practice as research. The day will feature: a performance/demonstration by Pia Van Gelder, Marian Tubbs and Astrid Lorange in conversation, and the presentation of new text/video/performance work by Clare Powell (created as part of the Firstdraft Writers Residency).

Part reading room, part film club, and part open dialogue, around the outside is dedicated to fostering informal, non-institutional learning and creative criticality. These events are hosted at the gallery and vary in content, such as performance, lectures and screenings and we also offer a barbecue and refreshments.

The artist Paul Chan writes that “art is form in the spirit of a question.” This instalment of Around the Outside will explore the relationship between practice and research in contemporary art, and will feature screenings, performances, talks, another edition of our ATO reader to sink your teeth into on the day (or take home with you to tackle in your own time), and as always, a BBQ for lunch-time.
