Date: Friday 7 December 2018
Location: NGV Australia, Federation Square
Time: 2.00pm – 3.30pm
Monash University’s Department of Fine Art, in collaboration with NGV, is pleased to present a special lecture by visiting curator and academic Associate Professor David Teh.
“In a canon of global modern art, what will be the place of the non-western modernists? Will they be celebrated as agents of change, for their commitments to universal notions of form, or for articulating specific local or national modernities? What kinds of research will secure their legacy, and who will be responsible for it? As the western museum scrambles to embrace the still expanding cosmos of modern art, revamping its collections in the image of the ‘global,’ a century of worldly art still awaits a worldly art history.”
