Title:The Meaning of Materials in Modern and Contemporary Art

When:10.12.2012 - 11.12.2012 

Where:Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane - Brisbane 



 In 2012, the AICCM Paintings Group symposium will be combined with the final year symposium for ‘The Twentieth Century in Paint’ Australia Research Council (ARC) Linkage Project. The event coincides with the opening of the Queensland Art Gallery/Gallery of Modern Art’s seventh ‘Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art’ on 8 December, and its weekend of opening events from 8-9 December.  


With a focus on the Asia Pacific’s diverse climate and history, the symposium aims to explore questions around artists’ intentions towards the materials they use. For example, how aspects of material choice are framed by availability, geography, culture and artistic intent; how tropical climates affect contemporary art materials and the way they age; and how this develops relationships between artists, collectors and those involved in the care of artworks. The symposium will focus on painters, but will include discussion of other media.

●          artists’ intent toward their materials
