About this Event

FREE EVENT

Please join us for the Melbourne premiere of the feature-length documentary Thrown into the World, directed by Antra Cilinska of Juris Podnieks Studio, Riga, Latvia. First screened in Riga in 2018, Thrown into the World offers unique insight into Imants Tillers’ creative process and cross-cultural identity. The screening will be followed by a half hour discussion with Imants Tillers chaired by Ian Mclean.

Imants Tillers is an artist, writer and curator. He has exhibited extensively since the late 1960s and has represented Australia at significant international exhibitions such as the Venice Biennale (1986), Documenta 7 (1982) and the São Paulo Bienal (1975). In 2018, his work was the subject of a major retrospective at the Latvian National Museum of Art in Riga. Tillers came to prominence during the 1970s and has been an influential advocate of conceptual art and postmodern discourse in Australia. He works primarily with appropriation, intuitively combining existing artworks, ideas, literature and 'ready-made' poetry in his imagery.

Ian Mclean is The Hugh Ramsay Chair of Australian Art History at The University of Melbourne, and has written extensively on the art of Imants Tillers.
