Professional Development Workshop: Paper Cut
Saturday 27 February, 3.30pm-4.30pm
Join us for this workshop for senior school teachers designed for our current exhibition Paper Cut.
Introduced by Curator of Academic and Public Programs, Dr Janice Lally, we will be joined by Curator of the Cruthers Collection of Women's Art, Lee Kinsella, who will share insights about the artworks in the exhibition, addressing a range of learning areas of the Visual Arts and HASS topics in the WA CSA for students.
Paper Cut is an exhibition of works on paper from UWA's Cruthers Collection of Women's Art. The 'cut' in the exhibition's title refers to both the technique and to the incisive cut of much of the subject-matter. It is a mass showing that reveals the particular strengths of the collection and the remarkable breadth of content, featuring many works on public display for the first time.
A Paper Cut residency program complements the collection display, showcasing print media and paper forms currently being produced by four local groups in dialogue with the themes, materials, strategies and processes of the exhibition.
Paper Cut contains images of deceased Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
Some works in the exhibition refer to adult themes.
Please note: due to Covid-19 safety precautions, registration is essential for this event and space is limited.
