Explore issues and systems impacting urbanised and regional spaces across our global environment with internationally renowned contemporary artist, Mary Mattingly.

 

Mary Mattingly’s large scale, immersive and site-specific works have not only interrogated some of the major challenges of our time, but have catalysed positive change.

 

Join Mary for a live streamed presentation that will provide highlights of some of the major public art projects she has undertaken. These projects have explored issues of social justice, land and water care and equity, portable shelters, food production and the goods and services supply chains that are so integral to our daily lives.

 

This 60-minute presentation will provide an overview of projects such as Swale, Waterpod, Wearable Portable Architecture, Arctic Food Forest and Mary’s latest work, Limnal Lacrimosa. There will also be a Q&A with the artist to draw the program to a close.
