Newell Harry, Circles in the Round, 2010

In week 11, we are very pleased to welcome artist Newell Harry for a guest lecture in MEDA102. Newell’s works have been exhibited widely in Australia as well as internationally. His work was chosen to be exhibited in All the World’s Futures at the 56th Venice Biennale in 2015. Newell works with diverse materials and across disciplines that comment on phenomena in contemporary society with particular attention paid to intercultural exchanges. His current projects play with language, code, and the archives.

MEDA102 lecture is scheduled on Thursday from 12.30 – 1.30 in G.01 Building 233. All welcome.

You can find out more about Newell’s works at the Roslyn Oxley Gallery website.
