Uneducated reviewed in The Age

Added on by Kym Maxwell.

It was wonderful  to arrive at the gallery yesterday and a parent tell me, Uneducated received another review in The Age, by Dan Rule!! I was soo chuffed, we were soo lucky. Especially since the very considered Dylan Rainforth had written about the children's 'Curation Project'; but Dan's review was different, it focused on the artists work, in particular focusing on the miminal selection within the show. It made a great contrast between the reviews.

Wow! That with Maura Edmond's interview there has been interest in the works within the show, the premise, as well as the artists' talks, the philospohy lecture and the children's curation. Wow, its been a bumper month of brilliance!!

I am very proud to be associated with the exhibition 'This Is Not The Work' at QUT Creative Industries Precinct. An exhibition curated by LEVEL focusing on women in the arts working in a socially engaged model. 'Uneducated' was presented as a satellite presentation, as a website within the tent, along with Sean Peoples 'Friendly Floatees' and through student response and their work.

presenting paper at a conference and attending a conference, both pertaining to knowledge and authority

Added on by Kym Maxwell.

This February I will be attending two conferences the first Authority and Knowledge: People, Policy, Politics at Melbourne University, in which I will be presenting a paper based on Palle's Nielsen's 1968 action 'Model for a Qualitative Society' and discussing agency in children, their first exploration of power and hierarchy through 'play' revealed in Palle's work. Also in early February I will be attending Spectres of Evaluation: rethinking art community value at the Footscray Community Arts Centre which I am very much looking forward too. Rob Ball states, 'Taking its cue from the artwork; Spectre of Evaluation (Thomas Hirschhorn, 2008) the conference looks to reconfigure the relationship between artists, art experts, and what the artist terms the “non-exclusive audience".' There's still conference tickets available at reduced rates for artists, so get onto it and see you there!
