15:00 - PUBLIC TALK - Aesthetics/Ethics/Catastrophe : Public talk with Michael Levine Website | More Information
There are two extreme positions traditionally taken with respect to the relationship between art and morality; one is autonomism, or aestheticism, which is the view that it is inappropriate to apply moral categories to artworks, and that only aesthetic categories are relevant, while at the other end of the scale is moralism, the view that aesthetic objects should be judged solely with respect to moral standards. Both autonomism and moralism are problematic, as they are based on inadequate conceptions of art and aesthetic value. I examine Leni Riefenstahl’s Triumph of the Will and Jacque Callot’s Miseries of War both to illustrate the issue and to come to some conclusion about it.

Michael Levine is professor of philosophy at the University of Western Australia. He is author of the following books: Prospects for an Ethics of Architecture, with Bill Taylor (2011), Doing Philosophy, Watching Movies, with Damian Cox (2011), Politics Most Unusual: Violence, Sovereignty and Democracy in the “War on Terror,” with Damian Cox and Saul Newman (2009), Integrity and the Fragile Self, with Damian Cox and Marguerite LaCaze (2003), and Pantheism: A non-theistic concept of deity (1994). Levine has also edited Racism in Mind, with Tamas Pataki (2004), and The Analytic Freud: Philosophy and Psychoanalysis (2000).

18:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - The Blush of the World: Bonnard’s Nudes and the Disembodied Look Website | More Information
The Blush of the World: Bonnard’s Nudes and the Disembodied Look

This lecture sets out to provide a framework within which one might begin to look at Bonnard’s canvasses depicting his wife, Marthe, in the rituals of washing and bathing. It suggests that the most common way of understanding Bonnard’s depiction of his wife’s face – in ‘contre jour’ or shadow – fails to attend to something more obviously somatic: the blush. de Bolla will argue that Bonnard was deeply immersed in a looking technique that was implicated in the world. In effect the sighted viewer is placed in a reciprocal optical relationship with the object seen. When one begins to look with Bonnard the world feels the presence and pressure of our looking and Bonnard’s depictions ask us to acknowledge that. This lecture is part of a longer project on Bonnard and in the time for discussion and conversation de Bolla hopes to introduce some of its other themes and interests.

Peter de Bolla is Professor of Cultural History and Aesthetics at the University of Cambridge where he took both his BA and doctorate. He taught for five years in the English Department at the University of Geneva before returning to Cambridge in 1986. He is the author of six monographs including The Discourse of the Sublime: Readings in History, Aesthetics and the Subject (Basil Blackwell, 1989), The Education of the Eye: Painting, Landscape, and Architecture in Eighteenth-Century England (Stanford University Press, 2003), Art Matters (Harvard University Press, 2001) and the forthcoming The Architecture of Concepts: the Historical Formation of Human Rights (Fordham University Press, 2013).

Art After Death

A half day symposium exploring legal, financial and other issues affecting artists after death

Arranged and supported by The University of Western Australia Law School, The University of Western Australia Cultural Precinct, and Artsource

An artist’s primary concern is developing their professional practise, in whatever guise that might take. But do artists ever ponder what will happen to their work when they are no longer here? Who will decide where their work can be shown, who can reproduce it and for what purposes can it be copied or used?

Like any other personal property, planning for an artist’s artwork, including who will own the work, administer the artist’s copyright and moral rights, and protect their reputation after death is an important but rarely discussed consideration.

Art After Death provides a unique opportunity to hear from prominent legal, accounting and arts professionals about the issues artists and their professional advisors may need to consider when planning for an artist’s will and estate. Participants will also have the rare opportunity to ask questions and raise issues with the panel during the session.

18:00 - VISITING SPEAKER - Building Urban Culture : A lecture by architect David Gianotten from OMA Website | More Information
The Dean of the Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Visual Arts is very pleased to welcome architect David Gianotten, Partner-in-charge (OMA Asia Pacific) for a special lecture on ‘Building Urban Culture’.

Through a series of urban and cultural projects that OMA has designed in different contexts, David will illustrate how architecture can contribute to the urban culture of different cities and bring new, unexpected urban conditions to a place. From gallery spaces, to performing arts venues, to large headquarter buildings, to masterplans, OMA has been experimenting with urban cultures of different scales and typologies, and the inherent potential of such. Urban Culture is not necessarily a fixed parameter in a specific context, but a morphing intangible entity that contributes to and changes with the context. Architecture is part of that urban culture.
