Dechaineux Lecture Theatre, Tasmanian School of Art, Hobart
Iteration:Again concludes with a symposium. The symposium is an opportunity (with the barest of hindsight) to reflect upon and analyse what transpired over the course of the thirteen commissions. Featuring many of the artists and curators involved in the series, the symposium will also offer compelling considerations of temporary public art by Marco Marcon and Paul O’Neill and an overview of the day from Mick Wilson. Held in conjunction with the School of Art, University of Tasmania, Hobart, this symposium aims to foster lively and considered discussion on temporary public art, the curatorial premise, and crucially how artists chose to respond or not respond to the challenges of both. The symposium will not/cannot be definitive, but a beginning point in thinking through what happened and provisional thoughts as to why. The discussion we hope will be broad ranging, lively and accessible to the diversity of audiences who experienced Iteration:Again. It is envisaged that the symposium will lay some of the groundwork for further discussions to take place in the future as other implications and consequences of the project become apparent.
