Beyond Empathy | Blue Rose

Daniel De Fillippo (3rd year BDM) is interning with Beyond Empathy arts organisation, assisting with their current projects. He is involved in staging the Blue Rose interactive sensory film installation event at the IPAC on the 20th & 21st of October. 

Blue Rose is a project exploring the experience of people who don’t use verbal language as their primary way to communicate – an insight into the experiences of people who are often unseen, or when seen, it is in a certain light.

Guest Lecture: Newell Harry

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.
