Artist Philip Brophy, writer and curator David Homewood and Martyn Jolly, Head of Photography and Media Arts, ANU School of Art, speak on and around the work of Robert Rooney.

Speakers

Philip Brophy
Writer

Philip Brophy will discuss how Robert Rooney's painting draws upon a conceptual understanding of the figurative and iconic, and how that legacy relates to current modalities of painting-as-thinking-about-painting.

David Homewood
Writer and Curator

David Homewood's talk will discuss the negation of artistic intention in Rooney's work from the late 1960s and early 1970s. It will focus in particular on the serialised depiction of the commonplace in several of his photographic works.

Martyn Jolly
Head of Photography and Media Arts at the ANU School of Art

Children and adolescents are often seen as ragged kid-flaneurs, re-mapping familiar urban or suburban spaces. Using a diverse range of historical Australian sources, Martin Jolly will explore these secret, under the adult radar, territories and trajectories.

A discussion will follow, lead by the exhibition curators, Maggie Finch and Patrick Pound.
