Art history: Renaissance art and Aboriginal rock painting

Art + Design

How could western painting ever be compared with Aboriginal rock art – aren’t they just too different?

Tomorrow March 7 at AH Bracks Library + Creative Space in Melville, Emeritus Professor Richard Read will be discussing just that.

The talk begins with some of the disastrous consequences that arise from the framing habits of Europeans when they first encountered the glories of Aboriginal art.

You can buy the very reasonably priced tickets ($5) right here. Morning tea is also provided (yum!).
