Art Skills, Life Skills: How To Cope
2 April 2019
Frank Moran Memorial Hall (Z11 Building)
Gona Pde, QUT Kelvin Grove campus
You are warmly invited to a talk event held in relation to our latest exhibition All We Can Do Is Pray
“All We Can Do is Pray” was an exhibition held at the Frank Moran Memorial Hall 8th -16th March 2019. The artwork of three Japanese artists—Meiro Koizumi, Junko Harada and Natsumi Seo—focused on the stories of women, children and elderly people who have lived through great loss, with emphasis on their strategies for coping. Expanding on this theme, “Art Skills, Life Skills: How to Cope” will begin with a short screening of a video work by Natsumi Seo and collaborator Haruka Komori followed by an audience-led, knowledge-sharing forum about how art can operate as a strategy for coping; both for artists and their audiences. Facilitated by Courtney Pedersen, Senior Lecturer of Visual Arts at QUT, and Emily Wakeling, QUT PhD student and exhibition curator.
Presented by Boxcopy and QUT Creative Industries
