Katrin Koenning: Keynote Speaker at Art and Mortality Symposium

THE_VEI_WEB

Death is one of the enduring themes in the arts, engaging visual artists working in all media. How do their art works, from the past and present, relate to contemporary concerns about dying and death?

Our very own Katrin Koenning will join 15 other artists including Fiona Hall, Patrick Pound, and Anne Noble, along with leading art historians and curators, to discuss ideas associated with mortality and the visual arts at the Art and Mortality Symposium held in the National Gallery of Australia and Australian National University, Canberra on Friday 19th and Saturday 20th of September 2014.
