Event description

Description


Join us as Associate Professor Jacqueline Van Gent examines and reflects on Julie Dowling’s artwork, The Seven Deadly Sins, which is currently on show in the exhbition Country & Colony. Comprised of a series of small canvases this work features images of exploitation of the environment, disregard for sacred sites of First Nation people, and disrespect for country and humanity in the pursuit of wealth.

Jacqueline Van Gent is an early modern historian at the University of Western Australia and Chief Investigator with the ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions (1100-1800). Her current research concerns emotions, materiality and colonial encounters in the early modern period.
