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.

This lesson returns us to the idea of time in a creative work: the ‘slow’ time of painting, the ‘quick’ time of photography and the ‘real’ time of reflection. When we become more aware of ourselves in relation to a work in front of us, we become aware of the movement of meaning over the time of our engagement with a work of art. In this group tutorial – a common fixture of art and design schools – we analyse the content and structure of three works by David with the artist present.
