Last week of Quiddity and Light moves: Contemporary Australian Video Art

Our current exhibitions Quiddity and Light moves: Contemporary Australian Video Art end this Saturday 20 August. Don’t miss out – come on in and remember we are open to 7 pm on Thursday and from 12-5pm on Saturday.

The Quiddity curatorium holding the Quiddity catalogue – complete with a critical Q & A from the team in which they explore the ‘slightly challenging schism between [exhibition] conception and implementation.”
Curated by RMIT Gallery in collaboration with interns from the RMIT Master of Arts Management courseQuiddity provided students the opportunity to put the skills they have learned into practice and tests whether theory can stand up to the real-time practicalities of curation in a public art gallery.

The conceptualisation and implementation of the exhibition which explores a ‘behind the scenes’ approach to the RMIT Art Collection are detailed in the Quiddity catalogue (selling for $5) and will be discussed at the final public program on Thursday 18 August from 5.30-6.30 pm along with guest speakers Professor David Forrest, HRD Coordinator, RMIT School of Art, and David Sequeira, a visual artist, art/business consultant and freelance museum education professional.

Prospective students wanting to find out more about the RMIT Master of Arts (Art Management) program would also find the session particularly useful.

Don’t forget to see our video art exhibition while you are at RMIT Gallery this week.

Light moves: Contemporary Australian Video Art is a touring exhibition from the National Gallery of Australia, featuring work by 

  • Daniel Crooks
  • Hayden Fowler
  • Shaun Gladwell
  • Gabriella and Silvana Mangano
  • David Rosetzky
  • Julie Rrap
  • Christian Thompson

Visitors have been mesmerised by the exhibition’s images of bodies moving through space and also by the diversity of work by Australian artists of the highest calibre. In particular, the exhibition is a wonderful opportunity for students in particular to explore a diversity of screen-based work and see how artists use the medium to create conceptual works that speak to their own personal interests and histories.
