Grace McQuilten ‘Art in Consumer Culture: Mis-Design‘
Anthony White, Senior Lecturer, Art History, School of Culture and Communication, the University of Melbourne will launch Art in Consumer Culture: Mis-Design. In this book, McQuilten asks the contemporary art world to be honest about the pervasive effects of co modification and the difficulty of staging critique. The book examines the collusion of ‘art’ and ‘design’ in contemporary artistic practices in order to find avenues of critique in a commercially driven cultural landscape.
Date: Thursday 15th September, 6:30pm
Venue: Readings Bookshop, Carlton
Free no need to book.
