Exhibiting culture: New histories – 5 day intensive block subject

This fully accredited, place based subject is delivered by La Trobe Art Institute in partnership with Bendigo Art Gallery.

Bendigo Art Gallery’s exhibition New Histories challenges the nature of art as historic record and the role of the artist as documenter, and commentator of the world. Taking the exhibition as a starting point, this subject will explore the constant re-evaluation and rewriting of history.

New Histories.brings together the work of ten contemporary artists who reimagine historic works from the 19th and early 20th century Australian and European collection of the Gallery. Informed by technological, social, environmental, political and historical events that have occurred since the original work’s creation, artists in the exhibition revisit interpretations of Australian and European histories through the lens of contemporary culture.

Running Monday 2 – Friday 6 July.
