Coinciding with the current MUMA exhibition Mutlu Çerkez: 1988–2065, Francis Plagne and Michael Graf will discuss Mutlu Çerkez's life and practice, together with Çerkez's system of 'future dating', where he ascribed his artworks with a future date on which he intended to remake the work; one of the defining features of his strongly conceptual practice.

Mutlu Çerkez: 1988–2065 is an exhibition and monograph that survey the art and life of Mutlu Çerkez, the Turkish Cypriot Australian artist who lived and worked in Melbourne until his death in 2005.
Çerkez was an influential artist who, during his lifetime, had a significant impact on the Australian and international art worlds. His work incorporated traditions of conceptual art, minimalism and monochrome painting but made its own internal logic its primary reference point while strenuously resisting a reduction to any single style.
Francis Plagne is a writer and musician, and has contributed a text to the monograph accompanying Mutlu Çerkez: 1988–2065
Michael Graf is a Melbourne-based artist, writer and curator and a member of the curatorial advisory committee for Mutlu Çerkez: 1988–2065
