Contemporary Art On The Road with Lisa Waup (Castlemaine)
In 2023, CAOTR will present five workshops, in conjunction with educators from three regional galleries: Horsham Regional Art Gallery, Castlemaine Art Museum and Shepparton Art Museum. The program will also present with Monash University Museum of Art (MUMA) and Gertrude's project satellite space Gertrude Glasshouse (Collingwood).
The first part of the program consists of formal presentations by educators from Gertrude, Monash University Museum of Art (MUMA), the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) and the host organisations. This will include a presentation by Kathryn Hendy-Ekers, Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority. A presentation and hands-on workshop by a current Gertrude Studio Artist will form the second part of the program.
Lisa Waup will lead a workshop demonstrating the re-use of materials to create remnant fabric jewellery and ornamentation. Lisa Waup is a mixed-cultural First Peoples multidisciplinary artist and curator born in Naarm Melbourne. Waup’s practice spans diverse media, including weaving, experimental printmaking, jewellery making, photography, sculpture, fashion and digital art. Through strong connections to symbology and materiality, her work connects her to family, Country, history and story, exploring personal experiences and a broader historical narrative. Lisa has exhibited widely both nationally and internationally and her works have been acquired into numerous institution collections.
Presenters: Kathryn Hendy-Ekers, Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority; Melissa Bedford, Monash University Museum of Art; Sharon Flynn, Gertrude; and representatives from the partnering galleries and museums.
