MODERNISM IN AUSTRALIAN ART
February 27 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Wednesday, happening 6 times
10.00 to 11.30 Wednesdays 6 sessions from 20 February
‘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
