Renowned Australian artist Tracey Moffatt will give her first Melbourne public lecture at RMIT University on Tuesday 7 July.
This is a rare opportunity to hear first-hand from one of Australia's best known and most influential contemporary artists.
Her talk will focus on the ideas behind her television series Art Calls with Tracey Moffatt.
In each chapter of the TV chat show, Moffatt takes us into the homes and studios of some of the world’s most interesting and edgy contemporary art personalities.
She has chatted with architects, fashion designers, writers and even comedians who delightfully respond to her good-humoured banter.
While Art Calls has all the hallmarks of a real chat show, it is in fact an art work commissioned by the Queensland Art Gallery/Gallery of Modern Art as part of a major exhibition that showcases her work since returning to Australia in 2010, after 12 years in New York.
Moffatt is also an artist featured in the 2015 VCE syllabus and this rare talk provides a valuable opportunity for educators to hear her speak in person.
She has exhibited extensively both here and overseas since her first solo exhibition at the Australian Centre for Photography in Sydney in 1989.
Her current art exhibition opens at the Centre for Contemporary Photography at 404 George Street, Fitzroy, on Friday 3 July.
This event has been made possible through the collaboration of RMIT University and the Centre for Contemporary Photography.
