Floor Talk: Staying with The Trouble
When: Saturday 16 December, 2pm -3pm
Cost: Free. Bookings appreciated
Where: Wagga Wagga Art Gallery, Upper Gallery - Margaret Carnegie Gallery
Join us for a very special floor talk by Linda Dening, Kim Mahood, Sally Simpson and Wendy Teakel. The artists will be discussing the individual and collective evolution of their work for their exhibition “Staying with the Trouble.”
The artists reference the ideas of author Donna J. Haraway, whose book ‘Staying with the Trouble’ asks us to stay with-in, live with-in and be with-in this planet; to take responsibility and action regarding the current crisis of life in our damaged world.
Staying with the Trouble is an exhibition featuring large scale experimental drawings resulting from a year of discussions and critiques between the four established artists. The exhibition recently won a Canberra Critics’ Circle Award.
These works ask viewers collaboratively to begin to lay the groundwork for imaging the unimaginable.
