Event description

Description

ACCA’s 2018 lecture series, Uncommon knowledge: artists on their special interests gives eight artists a microphone and an hour to speak about topics that inspire their art and thinking. Featuring a trans-generational cast of artists, Uncommon Knowledge brings together elements of history, lifestyle, philosophy, sound studies, sexuality, cultural politics and more, to challenge us to think differently about society and the world around us.

Presented by Abercrombie & Kent, these hour-long lectures will be presented monthly on Monday nights at 6pm from April through to November. Each lecture will be accompanied by a unique cocktail created by our partners The Melbourne Gin Company and Starward Whisky.

Please note, all lectures open at 5:30pm for a 6pm start.
