NorthSite – Artist Talks Season 1 2024
Join us to hear from the Artists at Mirndiyan Gununa Aboriginal Corporation, Mornington Island Art, with researchers from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Australian Biodiversity and Heritage (CABAH) as they speak about the collaborative exhibition ‘NGURRUWARRA/ DERNDERNYIN: Stone Fish Traps Of The Wellesley Islands’.
Following this conversation artists Geoff Dixon and Euan Macleod will discuss their exhibition ‘Facing Time: 50 Years’ and Local Artist Selina Kudo will share stories from her practice.
Geoff lives and works in Cairns, Queensland. Geoff has long been concerned with the fragility of the natural world alongside the human drive for collection and preservation, and with our contribution to the tragedy of extinction.
Euan has held more than fifty solo shows in New Zealand and Australia and has taken part in numerous group exhibitions in Australasia and internationally. Euan MacLeod has won art prizes in Australia, including the Archibald in 1999, and the SulmanPrize in 2001.
Guided by the work of Japanese photographers like Masahisa Fukase, Miyako Ishiuchi and Daido Moriyama, Kudo embraces the Japanese aesthetic of are, bure and boke (meaning grainy, blurry and out of focus) to capture anything and everything, that is, the essence of life.
Time and Date: 10AM — 12PM, Friday 3 February
Venue: NorthSite at Bulmba-ja, 96 Abbott Street, Cairns City
