28 April - Symposium: The Psychology of Portraiture
The Dax Centre and the Ian Potter Museum of Art, in conjunction with the exhibitions Hide and Seek and Inner worlds, are hosting a symposium on psychology and portraiture.
This half-day event will elaborate on themes raised by the exhibitions and draw on a number of frameworks including the psychoanalytical, psychological, artistic and creative, in addition to historical and cultural perspectives.
The event will combine a tour and curatorial presentation of both exhibitions, with a panel discussion to follow. Panelists will be Dr Eugen Koh (Director, The Dax Centre), Professor Joy Damousi (author and academic) and artist Mike Parr. ABC Radio National's Amanda Smith will be the MC.
Bookings are essential and need to be completed by Friday 20 April.
Cost is $25, with e-carts bought online at: www.art-museum.unimelb.edu.au
