Event description

Description

Theme: A work might be experienced in numerous ways—in person, online, across multiple versions, as a record, diagram, report, description, witness account, podcast, video, plan, remix, or even as a scalable aggregate of elements. Perhaps, once we consider the world of a work of art as a constellation of elements, the indeterminacy of art is given a more conspicuous materiality. Where is a work of art? Is there an optimum or primary point of entry into a work of art?

Chairs: Sean Lowry (VCA) and Jenny McMahon (Philosophy, Adelaide)


Presenters:

Barbara Bolt, Elizabeth Burns Coleman, Edward Colless, Cate Consandine, Claire Healy & Sean Cordeiro, Justin Clemens, Cynthia Freeland, Vanessa Godden, Andrew Goodman, Paul Guyer, Raafat Ishak, Kate Just, Tessa Laird, Claire Lambe, Sean Lowry, David Macarthur, Mohan Matthen, Jennifer A. McMahon, Rowan McNaught, Michael Newall, James Phillips, Lisa Radford, Geoff Robinson, Kiron Robinson, Bernhard Sachs, David Sequeira, Robert Sinnerbrink, Daniel von Sturmer, and Sophie Takách
