Event description

Description

Join us at the neighbouring Federation Hall at the Victorian College of the Arts for Prediction Piece #7, a performance by Lyndal Jones as part of the public programs for Unfinished Business.

In Prediction Piece #7, Jones performs a speech about the future, an act of prediction from three different gender positions. This audio-visual performance lecture was first presented as part of Australia: Nine Contemporary Artists, Culver City Masonic Temple, Los Angeles Olympic Arts Festival, 1984.

Lyndal Jones' Prediction Pieces are a series of ten works produced by Jones over a period of ten years since 1981. The Prediction Pieces are multi-disciplinary, time-based works which combine elements of theatre, music, visual art, dance, photography (slide works) and video.

Lyndal Jones is an artist who focuses on context, place and empowerment through long-term feminist projects involving performance and video installation. A retrospective of Jones’s Predication Pieces was presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney in 1992. Her works have been shown in major exhibitions throughout Australia, Europe, Asia and the U.S. since 1977, including the Venice Biennale where she represented Australia in 2001. Jones currently focuses on the The Avoca Project, an artwork which began in 2005 from a derelict old house in central Victoria as an address to the politics of a more interdependent ecology in the face of climate change.
