Event description
Join artist Daniel Boyd and a panel of distinguished University of Sydney academics from a range of fields to discuss ‘Pediment/Impediment’

About this Event

Join Indigenous artist Daniel Boyd, AGNSW Indigenous curator, Erin Vink, and University of Sydney academics, Indigenous architect Michael Mossman and classicist, Peter Wilson in a panel discussion on Boyd’s installation ‘Pediment/Impediment’, the inaugural contemporary art project in the Penelope Gallery. Dr Ann Stephen, Senior Curator, University Art Collection, will chair the discussion.

Throughout his practice, Daniel Boyd often works with archives and museum collections as source material to create his vision of decolonisation. Over a period of months, Boyd researched the Chau Chak Wing Museum’s various collections, eventually selecting a group of 19th century plaster casts from the Nicholson Collection of antiquities. Veiled in pinpoints of light, the installation employs the idea of darkness as a form of Indigenous resistance to counter the power of Enlightenment ideas and western civilisation.

Please note: this event is an in-person experience and will not be live streamed.
