Join local artists Denis Chapman and George Lianos as they discuss their current exhibitions with La Trobe Art Institute Senior Curator, Dr Kent Wilson.
Enjoy a complimentary drink before viewing our three current exhibitions Think and Feel: Abstract Art in the FM Courtis Collection; In Memoriam: Denis Chapman and Geometric Beings: George Lianos.
Chapman’s exhibition, In Memoriam, examines three specific acts of gun related violence in contemporary American society. Using every-day objects, the artist seeks to honour the memory of those who died and at the same time acknowledge the courageous acts of both the victims and survivors.
Lianos is interested in the way his large angular steel structures can create perceptions of embodied energy, movement and dynamic balance. His exhibition, Geometric Beings, occupies both courtyards at the La Trobe Art Institute, 121 View Street, Bendigo.
This event is FREE but tickets are limited and booking is recommended.
In Memoriam and Geometric Beings are on show at La Trobe Art Institute, 121 View Street, Bendigo from 9 May to 18 June 2017.
