Live Performance: Helen Grogan, 'Concrete Room'

As part of our current exhibition Infrastructuralism, artist Helen Grogan will perform CONCRETE ROOM. In this sound work, the artist will use a microphone to trace the perimeter (and parameters) of the gallery spaces at La Trobe Art Institute.

Discussion: The Institute of Art

Following the performance of CONCRETE ROOM, join Helen Grogan and fellow exhibiting artists Carolyn Eskdale and Shannon Lyons as they discuss the role of contemporary art and curatorial practice in Institutional critique. Facilitated by Dr Kent Wilson, Senior Curator LAI.

"Institutional critique"
A critical inquiry into the systems that define art institutions, including but not limited to its operation, processes, and language (see Art Speak, see White Cube). For artists working in this theme, this often involves making art that challenges and critiques the very structure in which their art is presented. (See Agatha Gothe-Snape, Carolyn Eskdale, Helen Grogan, Jessie Bullivant and Shannon Lyons).
