Event description

Description

For David Thomas: Colouring Impermanence our public programs will form a ‘micro-course' that draws on Professor David Thomas’ teaching practice. Participants in our free series of eight lessons (one for each week of the show) will undertake activities as if enrolled in David's classes. The micro-course is an introduction to the way David works, how and why the exhibition at Design Hub has been created and how David teaches creative practice. Each lesson will explore ideas such as attentive and 'empathetic' looking, timing, materiality, pictorial space, art history and theory. The lessons will involve looking, drawing, photography, conversation, reflection and review. David will host the majority of the classes and at times will draw on his community of artist, educator and curator peers as well as past and present students.

Lesson six is a round-table event with writers and curators who have worked with David and we use his approach to practice as a leaping off point. In this class we host a conversation about expanded practice and how the boundaries around the disciplines of art, architecture and design are useful to one another.

Participants: Professor David Cross, Head of Art and Performance, Deakin University; Suzie Attiwill, Associate Professor, Interior Design and Deputy Dean Learning + Teaching, RMIT Architecture and Design; Lesley Harding, Curator, Heide Museum of Modern Art; Dr Fleur Watson, Curator, RMIT Design Hub; Kate Rhodes, Curator, RMIT Design Hub (Chair).
