Wagga Wagga Art Gallery is delighted to host a public round table conversation in association with the exhibition Christopher Orchard: Psychocartography on Saturday 21 April. Join a group of artists and community members as we discuss respectful relationships about knowledge, custodianship and what it means to work with one another in caring for and observing Country.
The panel will include Wiradjuri Elder and artist Lorraine Tye, Waradgerie (Wiradjuri) Artist Lorraine Connelly-Northey, Professor Tim Wess, Dean of Science at Charles Sturt University, and artist and academic Christopher Orchard. The discussion will be facilitated by Linda Elliott, Curator of Education and Public Programs at Wagga Wagga Art Gallery.
The round table discussion will take as its starting point, Christopher Orchard’s exhibition, Psychocartography, currently on display. In this exhibition, Orchard draws from a wide body of academic and place-based knowledge to make connections between memories and geographies (‘psychocartography’) that are presented as a series of ‘matters of care’. These matters of care include relationships between humans and animals, humans and soil, humans and plants – all explored as ways in to a deeper connection with the world. The round table will lead into broad discussions ranging across disciplines and cultures.
Starting at 1.30pm, this is a free event for all community members and no bookings are required. Join us for a thought-provoking and inspiring exchange of views and experiences!
