Join us for a talk by Dr Rosemary Hawker, a senior lecturer in Art Theory, Fine Art at Griffith University Queensland College of Art. Dr Hawker has recently curated the acclaimed "Gerhard Richter: The Life of Images" exhibition at the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane.

In this lecture, Dr Hawker will discuss the relationship between painting and photography in Richter's work, and the issues involved in curating an exhibition of an artist of the stature of Richter.

Rosemary Hawker’s research and teaching centre on the interpretation of contemporary art through medium relations, theories of representation, concepts of visuality, image/text relationships, the history and theory of photography, and in particular, the relationship between photography and painting and the work of German artist Gerhard Richter.
