MIDPOINTNESS: STEVE DUTTON

OPENING 6PM SATURDAY 26 SEPTEMBER 2015

23 - 27 SEPTEMBER 2015

When is something finished? When might something begin? Midpointness explores these questions through a performative process of exhibition making in which artists and curators are present throughout. The project will begin with an exhibition of work by selected artists, which is then dismantled and constantly reconstructed, re-imagined, re-classified and augmented throughout the exhibition by curators, artists, students and gallery visitors.

NEXT TO NOTHING: ART AS PERFORMANCE - A MEETING OF ART AND PHILOSOPHY IN THE AGE OF POST-DE-MATERIALISATION

A TWO-DAY FREE SYMPOSIUM

SATURDAY 26 & SUNDAY 27 SEPTEMBER 2015

Join us for a two-day generative performance and symposium event in partnership with the School of Creative Arts, University of Newcastle.

Today, creative and performing artists routinely take on themes and issues rather than styles. They work as comfortably with art as material as they do with art as performative. It is not what or how it is represented but rather the ideas and concepts an artwork exemplifies that defines it.

This symposium will present a dynamic program of performance and talks by local, inter-state and international artists and academics and a keynote speech by artist in residence Professor Steve Dutton.

Curated by Associate Professor Jenny McMahon, Associate Professor Philosophy, University of Adelaide and Dr Sean Lowry, School of Creative Arts, University of Newcastle.
