Peter Atkins: Concepts and Process
Next date: Thursday, 24 June 2021 | 05:30 PM
to 07:00 PM
WRITING & CONCEPTS is a lecture and publication series exploring the insights that visual arts practitioners have in to their own creative and cultural practices, and provides an opportunity for them to discuss and publish these insights in a public forum. Contributors include practitioners for whom the written form is their primary professional output and practitioners whose work manifests as exhibitions or events within the domain of contemporary art.
WRITING & CONCEPTS is produced by Future Tense and moderated by Jan van Schaik and Fjorn Butler.
Supported by MvS Architects and RMIT’s School of Art and School of Architecture & Urban Design, Melbourne University and ART + AUSTRALIA, and each of the host venues.
In ‘Concepts and Process’ Peter Atkins will delve into and discuss ideas around a series of unexhibited or unrealised projects/concepts from the past decade through images and small maquettes, including the works Disconnected, Beach Motel and Deconstructed Meadmore. Not everything that an artist makes or develops in the studio progresses to a realised outcome in an art gallery or public space. This is especially so when your practice is project based. These ideas however, can often progress into exciting new projects or provide entirely new ways of considering particular outcomes.
