Event description

Description

Join us for our free Art Forum Series, held throughout the year. Each forum will feature a different artist discussing their work and ideas, followed by a Q&A.

With his use of words and phrases as imagery, Jon Campbell captures aspects of his culture that are both lived and observed, that are local, national and international and that can be spoken, written, sung, and read. Campbell’s masterfully realized paintings, cut-outs, banners, neon’s, flags and songs demonstrate his love of suburbia and it’s vernacular. Popular music and its attendant culture, printing, design and advertising, sport and youth culture also feature heavily in his practice. His works define not only the look of the world in which he lives, but the accent and humour of its language and how signs can articulate its culture and history. Jon Campbell is a former lecturer in Painting at the VCA and the Guest Curator of Remedy, a program of performance at the Margaret Lawrence Gallery September 7 and September 21.

We strongly encourage registration for all of our events. This guarantees your seat at an event and allows us to communicate any unforseen event scheduling changes with you. Please note, however, that you are not required to print your ticket prior to arrival.

The ART150 Forum Series is part of ART150: Celebrating 150 years of Art.
