Wednesday 27 July
1-2pm, Black Theatre
Drawn to epic and historical tales recounting human will, sorrow and optimism Sarah Mosca’s practice responds to both theoretical texts and pursuits of optimism. Each work threads recurring themes of sorrow and fiction to ask philosophical questions about truth, formlessness and aesthetics, exploring the object-hood and materiality of image-making within a contemporary art context. Sarah will discuss her current practice and her personal experience on 'what happens' after Art School.
Sarah Mosca’s recent exhibitions include Contemporary Collection, National Gallery of Australia, Care, Interstate Projects, New York, Its all beneath the floor, it’s all between the walls, Vienna, Austria, The Alchemists, Australian Centre for Photography, Cataracts and Waterfalls, Sarah Cottier Gallery. She is co-director of curatorial initiative SuperKaleidoscope with Kim Fasher, which was awarded an Australia Council OYEA Grant, a Firstdraft Emerging Curators Grant, NAVA Artists’ Grant and were semi-finalists in both the 2011 and 2012 British Council Realise Your Dream Awards. Sarah has a BFA Honours degree NAS and a Masters of Art Administration, University of New South Wales Art & Design. She is represented by Sarah Cottier Gallery, Sydney.
