Join Kevin Jones to re-assess how you generate meaning around your practice. Running from September to December, Critical Dialogues is a course of 12 sessions that discusses the mechanisms of critique. Through lively interrogation of critical texts on local, regional and international exhibitions, participants decode and unravel the strategies at work in the production of meaning around art. Sessions discuss topics such as the mythification of the artist, postcolonialism and the question of identity, and explore issues including how practitioners frame their practice, multiculturalism, and the relationship between artists and institutions. All reading material is provided.

This is the third consecutive edition of Critical Dialogues. The course is recommended for artists, writers, curators and individuals actively engaged in contemporary art.

Limited capacity. Early registration is advisable.
