  • Panel discussion: On art, text and activism

    Thursday 16 Feb 2017, 6.00- 7.30pm

    Sister Corita Kent’s work borrowed text from signs, slogans, popular song lyrics, billboards, product packaging and magazine advertising, transporting messages of joy, faith, love, the power of God, and protest against the political crises of the times.

    Join us as we discuss art that uses text, appropriation from literature and popular culture and the role of activism through a contemporary art lens with artists Peter Tyndall, Janet Burchill and Jennifer McCamley.

    Wine and canapes will be served.
