‘Modernism’ was an art movement which arrived in Australia after Federation and has come to affect much of the work of Australian artists since that time. In this course we will consider ‘Modernism’ in relation to the social and political events of this period of Australian history.
The course will be delivered by multimedia presentations, archival art materials and, hopefully, robust discussion. You do not have to be an artist to enjoy this course but you do need to be interested in ideas and it does help if you have a sense of humour as some of the course content touches on the surreal and unbelievable. The course will help you to better understand and appreciate the art you see all around you

We will playfully explore and share the full meaning of the concept of ‘intimacy’ from a baseline of its physical/sexual connotations, to the idea of a deep emotional connection and finally on to a sense of universal connectedness.
The Art of Intimacy is designed as both a consolidation and an extension of material previously covered in The Art of Contentment (2017) and The Art of Relationship (2018). There will be a higher experiential component to the material in 2019.
