Joseph Fonti (The Painter) and Karima Baadilla (The Potter) explore their ability to effectively engage in visible ‘discussion’.


Using drawing, painting and sculptural techniques, one of the pair will produce a mark or visual idea, to which the other will respond immediately. Both artists are unable to audibly "speak" to one another for the duration of their visual dialogue – instead resolving their “conversation” with finished works.


Opening Night: Tuesday 8 August 5-7pm
Artists Talk: Friday 18 August, 1pm


First Site Gallery is run by RMIT Link Arts and Culture
