  • Thursday talks: Colour Me Dead

    Artist talk

    Thursday 13 Jun 2013, 1.00- 1.30pm
    Philip Brophy

    Philip Brophy will discuss his new series of digital animations, video projections and prints, collectively titled Colour Me Dead.

    Brophy's six new digital works have been created in parallel to the first 6 chapters of his examination of over 3,000 artworks in his forthcoming 18-chapter book of the same name—a virtual tome which examines how the nude has historically been posed, lit, depicted, rendered and transformed.

    Colour Me Dead is the third in the series of Vizard Foundation Contemporary Art Projects, a creative initiative of the Vizard Foundation which offers artists a $30,000 grant to produce new work. The projects are designed to encourage mid-career and senior artists to take risks and explore new directions in their practice.

    No booking required. More information about the exhibition here.
