Join Monash University Associate Professor Brook Garru Andrew and artist Kate Golding in conversation with Professor Clare Wright OAM, for a timely and powerful discussion around Australia’s contested colonial history.
Brook is a Wiradjuri/Celtic artist, whose practice critically examines dominant narratives related to global histories of colonialism and modernity. Kate’s work interrogates the memorialisation of Captain Cook, challenging the objective truths claimed by monuments erected in his name. Clare is an award-winning historian, author, broadcaster and public commentator. She hosts the ABC Radio National history series, Shooting the Past, and co-hosts the LTU podcast Archive Fever. Clare is spearheading a campaign for statue equality, inspired by her research revealing that only 3% of statues in Australia are of real women.
With a multitude of overlapping themes of research this lively discussion should not be missed.
Presented as part of Photo 2021 and MTalks – part of the MPavilion program for 2021.
