Dorkbot CBR first talk for 2011 Tuesday 29th March

ZiZi_the_Affectionate_Couch_Mona

We hope you can join us in Dork for the first chat for 2011.

Stephen Barrass and Alexandra Gillespie will present a slideshow of
the opening of David Walsh’s
Museum of Old and New Art (mona.net.au) in Hobart in January this year.
MONA is notable as the first private museum of contemporary art in
Australia. Unfettered by sponsors, politics or curatorial constraints, Walsh
exhibits Dr. Nitche’s Euthanasia Machine (presented as My Beautiful Chair in
collaboration with Greg Taylor) that is too controversial for any other
museum in Australia to show, while just down the hall is Chris Ofili’s The
Holy Virgin Mary with elephant dung that was part of an exhibition cancelled
by the National Gallery of Australia…and also Stephen’s
collaborative work ZiZi the Affectionate Couch.

If there is time Stephen will also talk about work in progress for the
Embracing Innovation exhibition at Crafts ACT this month. Given even more
time he will also talk about a workshop on physical computing at the
University of Canberra this month.

Save the date: Tuesday 29th March
Time: 6 -7pm
Location: CCAS GALLERY, Gorman House Arts Centre
Street: Ainslie Ave. Braddon

Hope to see you there!

Alex
