A - Z of Contemporary Art Masterclass
This action packed and exciting art appreciation Masterclass, presented in association with Art Month, will introduce you to contemporary art in its many guises. You will develop an eye for contemporary art and learn how to express your art opinion with confidence, insight and flair. Plus, to make the experience even more special, the first 20 booked attendees will be invited to the exclusive opening night Art Month party (Tuesday 1 March). Gallery visits and dinner party conversations will never be the same!We have assembled some of Australia’s leading art curators, critics and experts to take you on this journey. First you will be introduced to the wide breadth of contemporary art by Art Month director Barry Keldoulis and Guardian art critic, Andrew Frost. This intimate tutorial will highlight art works, movements, neos and isms that all fall under the contemporary art umbrella. Then, after a guided tour of selected works featured in Art Month, you will be invited to debate and discuss the work with Andrew, Barry and leading curator and gallerist Nina Miall (CarriageWorks, Future Perfect). The session aims to highlight the variety of ways in which art can and should be spoken about - you’ll be encouraged to express yourself and ask all of the questions, no matter how silly you might think them to be. All are welcome and in this friendly environment.
