Artists in Conversation:
Peter Atkins, Dana Harris and the legacies of modernism

Sunday 21 April 2024

Be inspired by the practices of two leading contemporary artists in a not-to-be-missed event at TarraWarra.

Join us for a conversation with Peter Atkins, Dana Harris and curator Anthony Fitzpatrick as they discuss the inspiration and processes that have informed the artists’ new artworks, currently on display in SUPERsystems.

Part of a distinguished lineage of Australian artists who employ patterns, geometry and repetition as key elements in their creative process, Atkins and Harris will discuss the ongoing influence of modernism in art. They will also share their deep knowledge of the work of Clement Meadmore, the acclaimed industrial designer and modernist sculptor, whose orderly and systematic production processes are reflected in their own creative practices.

The conversation will conclude with a short Q&A with the audience, followed by refreshments courtesy of our sponsors. Exhibition entry is included in your ticket.

Sunday 21 April 2024 2pm
$15 (Members FREE!)
