Metonymy and painting
Thu. 30 March 2017, 2:00 pm – 4:30 pm AEST
Join us for a conversation between Dr Kari Sullivan (UQ School of Languages and Cultures), Denise Green exhibition curator Michele Helmrich and Dr Holly Arden (UQ Art Museum) as they explore concepts of metonymy in Denise Green’s work and pose the question: can we read paintings? How might this differ from the types of visual analysis practiced by art historians and critics?
This discussion will lead audiences on a tour of the exhibition Denise Green: Beyond and Between ― A Painter’s Journey, now in its final days!
