Event description

Description

The power of Hearman’s pictures is in the way they move us emotionally; while we may never comprehend exactly what we are seeing, we can feel their impact in our body and mind

- Anna Davis 2016

Join us for an unmissable afternoon with respected contemporary Australian artist Louise Hearman in conversation with Anna Davis, Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA). Hosted by Susan Johnson, an award-winning author and journalist with the Courier Mail, hear in-depth about Louise’s work and the processes that lead to the selection of works for the exhibition.

Louise Hearman, winner of the 2016 Archibald Prize for her portrait of Barry Humphries, is a Melbourne based artist who is best known for her dark, dream-like paintings where things may, or may not be, as they seem. Often said to have a cinematic quality, like film stills Hearman’s surreal paintings capture transient moments of imaginary time.

This event is presented in conjunction with the first major museum survey of Hearman’s work, curated by Anna Davis and showing at QUT Art Museum from 3 June to 6 August 2017. Featuring works from 1990 – 2016, this is a touring exhibition organised by the MCA in Sydney.

Ahead of the discussion, attendees are encouraged to view the exhibition Louise Hearman, showing at QUT Art Museum. A short walk from QUT Gardens Theatre, QUT Art Museum weekend opening hours are 12pm – 4pm.


This event is supported by Womankind magazine, an advertising-free women’s magazine on self, identity and meaning in today’s society. Free copies will be available exclusively for attendees of An afternoon with Louise Hearman.
