Join us to hear from Dr Julie Gough who will give a presentation on The object of research and Artmaking as active remembrance.

The presentation explores the relationship between research, art making and public outcomes through project examples that review in particular colonial Van Diemen’s Land from a position in the present, and through the lenses of the land, the archives, memory and objects.

With a PhD and BA Hons in Visual Arts from the University of Tasmania, a Masters degree from Goldsmiths College, University of London, BA (Visual Arts) Curtin University and a BA (Prehistory/ English Literature) from the University of West Australia Gough has exhibited since 1994 in more than 130 exhibitions including: TENSE PAST, solo survey exhibition TMAG Hobart June-November 2019; Defying Empire, National Gallery of Australia, 2017 - touring; THE NATIONAL, MCA, 2017; With Secrecy and Despatch, Campbelltown Arts Centre, 2016; undisclosed, National Gallery of Australia, 2012; Clemenger Award, National Gallery of Victoria, 2010; Biennial of Sydney, 2006; Liverpool Biennial, UK, 2001; Perspecta, AGNSW, 1995.
