Public Talk: Work/Life Balance, a talk exploring the works of Tai Snaith, WITH EUGENIA LIM

Added on by Kym Maxwell.

Please join Tai Snaith and guests, Eugenia Lim, Kym Maxwell and Jo Scicluna, for a drink and discussion surrounding Snaith’s current exhibition, ‘Work-life Balance’ at The Other Side.

Forum 011 will be conversational in nature and governed by the broader themes informing Snaith’s ‘portrayals’ of each staff member at Paul Morgan Architects: exploring the notion of 'site' garnered through a process of exchange, sustaining one’s creative practice upon becoming a parent, interpreting this ‘juggling’ as a feminist practice and determining when it is (and isn't) acceptable to allow life to bleed into art.

Eugenia Lim is an Australian artist who works across video, performance and installation. Interested in how nationalism and stereotypes are formed, Lim invents personas to explore the tensions of an individual within society. Lim’s work has been exhibited internationally including the Tate Modern, GOMA, ACMI, HUN Gallery NY, and FACT Liverpool.

Kym Maxwell is an artist, curator, educator and writer whose work within and across these distinct fields investigates notions of education and social spaces. She explores risk adversity, play paradigms and relational aesthetics. Maxwell’s practice explores the types of interpersonal relationships generated in new situations such as socially engaged art activities and curation.

Date: Thursday January 28

Time: 5.45 pm for a 6pm start

Place: The Other Side, Level 10, 221 Queen Street, Melbourne

This series of artists’ forums are intended as an opportunity for professional development for each exhibiting artist. These discussions, focusing on spatial dialogue, are directed towards creative practitioners across the art, craft and design communities.

The Other Side is a practice-led exhibiting space. Situated in the entry foyer of Paul Morgan Architect’s Design Studio, its primary aim is to establish an art and architecture dialogue and a forum for the exchange of ideas. The space also aims to introduce the work of artists to architectural clients. The Other Side is a non-commercial initiative, where all sales generated go directly to each artist.
