Wednesday 24
18:00 - PUBLIC TALK - Finding Rembrandt in Love and Life Website | More Information
A public lecture by Dr Susan Broomhall, School of Humanities (History), UWA.

This lecture explores how the character of Rembrandt van Rijn is interpreted through place, gender and emotions in museums and heritage sites in the Netherlands today. It focuses on the cities of Leiden and Amsterdam, Rembrandt’s homes, and particularly, the role of women in shaping interpretations of Rembrandt’s life and work. Historical women in Rembrandt's life are increasingly employed as tools to understand the artist's mind in creative responses such as Peter Greenaway's 2006 film 'Nightwatching' or the 2009 Australian opera by Andrew Ford and Sue Smith, 'Rembrandt's Wife'. This lecture investigates how heritage sites have likewise co-opted Rembrandt's relationships with women, in a range of ways, in order to increase visitor engagement.

Rembrandt’s death took place 350 years ago this year, in 1669. Museums across the globe, from Amsterdam to the Arabian Gulf, are staging exhibitions to commemorate his artistic legacy, and a life that was far from a masterpiece. Sometimes dismissed contemptuously in his own time, the supreme genius of Rembrandt is now universally acknowledged. The Institute of Advanced Studies at The University of Western Australia is pleased to present a series of lectures offering insights into the artist’s life, his work and its reception.

18:00 - EVENT - Film Screening: Kew's Forgotten Queen Website | More Information
Join us for a screening of Kew’s Forgotten Queen, a documentary celebrating the work of one of the most prolific botanical artists of the Victorian age – Marianne North. At a time when women barely left their parlour rooms, North defied convention as she travelled alone navigating the world twice, from Borneo to Brazil to Japan, in her pursuit of documenting every living plant on her canvas. Marianne North (24 October 1830 – 30 August 1890) was a prominent biologist and botanical artist, widely renowned for her plant and landscape paintings, plant discoveries, writings, and the creation of her gallery at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

What happens when you mix art with technology, medicine, geology, mathematics? We often see art as a field separate from all others, as an independent pursuit of creativity. However, when we combine it with other aspects of our lives, the results are fascinating. Listen to a line-up of presenters as they explore enchanting worlds created with imagination and inventiveness by bringing art into their fields of practice.
