  • Thursday talks: Heat in the eyes

    Personal response tour

    Thursday 11 Jul 2013, 1.00- 1.30pm
    Dr Heather Gaunt

    Dr Heather Gaunt, Curator of Academic Programs (Research), will use her recent experiences in the USA at Harvard and Yale Universities to offer a new way of approaching the exhibition Heat in the Eyes.

    This ‘personal response tour’ will be fun, engaging, and allow you to share insights and ‘ways of seeing’ in the exhibition space.

    The exhibition presents more than fifty works recently acquired through purchase and donation. Many of the works are being shown for the first time, providing audiences with the opportunity to experience a dynamic selection of recent Australian art.

    No bookings required.
