Melbourne Modern: European Art & Design at RMIT since 1945 | Artists’ Talk

Two graduates of the RMIT sculpture program, Antonia Sellbach and Fleur Summers, discuss their respective artistic practices. Both employ concepts of play and audience interaction in their work, and both interrogate earlier modernist models of art as an agent of social change.

About the Speakers

Antonia Sellbach is a Melbourne based artist, whose work explores abstraction in relation to thought, sensation, language and serial decision-making. An RMIT alumni, Antonia is also the daughter of émigré artist Udo Sellbach.

Fleur Summers is lecturer in sculpture at the School of Art, RMIT. She focuses on teaching developmental working processes with reference to spatial practice.
