Artist Talk with T-collective and Curator Grace McQuilten
12pm, Thursday October 27
Artist group T-collective bring distinct perspectives of agency and resilience to the often silenced experiences of loss, grief and violence. The collective examines the mutability and complexity of memory, opening a dialogue and activating a more rigorous discussion around trauma, one that departs from perceptions that trauma-informed art is about catharsis and isolates the artist as victim. Join us for a lunchtime conversation at RMIT Gallery as we extend on this dialogue.
T-collective comprises four mature-age artists, Simon Crosbie, Mig Dann, Yi Won Park and Jude Worters, whose work is based on the lived experience of personal trauma. Each member is currently undertaking PhD studies in the School of Art at RMIT.
Grace McQuilten is a published art historian, curator and artist with expertise in contemporary art and design, public art, social practice, social enterprise and community development.
