    Raafat Ishak

    In 2010 the Potter presented Raafat Ishak: recipes for aversion and strategy. Work in progress #6, a survey of Raafat Ishak’s art that spanned his career from his first solo show And government in 1995.

    Ishak will speak on three paintings—Untitled no. 7, Untitled no. 8 and Untitled no. 14—from the series Emergencies, accidents and congratulations, 2009, which was included in this survey exhibition and subsequently acquired by the Potter for the University of Melbourne Art Collection.

    Through the acquisition of important works such as this, the Potter is better able to reflect upon and demonstrate the journey of a specific artist’s career, while also making important connections between the work of artists from within and across generations.

    No bookings required.
