What's on at VCA and MCM

Some Artists & Philosophers Walked into a Room...

11 Jul 2017, 9:30am - 5:00pm

Theme: A work might be experienced in numerous ways—in person, online, across multiple versions, as a record, diagram, report, description, witness account, podcast, video, plan, remix, or even as a scalable aggregate of elements. Perhaps, once we consider the world of a work of art as a constellation of elements, the indeterminacy of art is given a more conspicuous materiality. Where is a work of art? Is there an optimum or primary point of entry into a work of art?

 Chairs: Sean Lowry (VCA) and Jenny McMahon (Philosophy, Adelaide)

This is a free event, however bookings are essential, please book via Eventbrite.
