Special Guest speaker. 3pm.
This is a unique opportunity for us. Adrian, since moving to New Zealand after leaving COFA, has been unavailable for events such as this. For me, and many others, his absence and his past frequent calling to account of art practices lacking critical rigour, has been sorely missed – along with his humour. So it is great to have a chance to hear from him again.
Adrian Hall, as an artist and educator, has been an inspirational and catalytic presence in Australia as well as in a number of countries overseas. He has an uncompromising integrity in his approach to his work and a commitment to the compelling and enigmatic nature of art as a vital process of knowing.
As a key figure at SCA in the 1980s, he has had a lasting influence on students and colleagues alike.
