Identity and Transnationalism in Australian and Global Art
John Young in discussion with Dr Christopher Chapman, Christine Clark (NPG) and Professor Jacqueline Lo (ANU).
Artist John Young discusses his figurative, abstract and textual projects which have been realised in the last decade. While these projects re-imagine events and subjectivities, recently they address the history of the Chinese diaspora. As ever in his work, these projects implicitly address the urgent issues of time, speed, the transcultural and ethics.
Free event sponsored by the Humanities Research Centre ANU.
