Objects and Journeys
An illustrated talk by Professor Paul Coldwell, Professor of Fine Art, University of the Arts, London.
Professor Paul Coldwell is internationally recognised for his prints, book works, sculptures and installations. He was a keynote speaker in Australia at the 2011 Impact7 International Multidisciplinary Printmaking Conference and has represented the UK in numerous European print biennials. His work is held in prestigious public collections at the Tate, Victoria & Albert Museum, the British Museum and the Arts Council of England.
His illustrated talk, Objects and Journeys, will look at the relationship between printmaking and sculpture in his own art practice, and at his use of objects to construct images of vulnerability and uncertainty. In particular, it will discuss his current survey exhibition: A Layered Practice – Paul Coldwell Graphic Works 1993-2012, its themes of journeying, absence and loss and his engagement with old and new print technologies.
When: Friday 19 April from 6-8pm.
Where: Fitzroy Town Hall Reading Room, 201 Napier Street, Fitzroy, Melbourne.
Limited edition prints from the PCA archive will be available for purchase on the night. Entry is by gold coin donation and refreshments will be provided.
RSVP by 17 April
