Sidney Nolan Symposium at the RA

Sidney Nolan Symposium at the RA

22nd April 2017
11:00am to 5:00pm

Held on the centenary of the seminal Australian painter’s birth, join the RA as it celebrates the life and work of Sidney Nolan RA.

Over a day of discussion and debate, there will be an exploration of contemporary and universal themes including the notion of a global artist with international perspectives; the artist as a polymath with expertise and practices across different media and methods; and materiality within the artistic process, including the experimentation and innovation for which Nolan was known.

The day will include a morning private view of the exhibition in Australia House,Unseen: Works from the Sidney Nolan Trust Collection; a special display of Nolan’s self portraits from the RA Collection, and will be followed by a drinks reception.
