'Adaptive Reuse' and Transit in Australian Art + Architecture
24. April 2007
7 pm, at Taut Saal
Introduction: Katie Hepworth (AUS)
Speakers: Miriam Mlecek (DE/AUS), Isabelle Toland (AUS) and Jasper Knight (AUS)
The Transit Lounge is an artist-in-residence program for Australian + Berlin-based artists and architects, which aims to blur the boundaries between the disciplines through a focus on short, process-focused, interdisciplinary collaborations. The program challenges artists to rethink their approach to art-making by encouraging them to adapt, reuse, evolve and even destroy the work of previous artists in the space.
Isabelle Toland, Jasper Knight and Miriam Mlecek are all artists-in-residence at the Transit Lounge. They will discuss their own work in reference to the process of the Transit Lounge, and to the broader context of contemporary Australian art and architecture.
