M-talks consortium: 'Invisible hnds make light work: Art and Unwageds Labour'
Wednesday 21 October, 7am
Free. No bookings required.
M-Pavilion presents Consortium: a series of conversations within a series of talks—presented by a coalition of partners who support emerging and experimental art and design practices in Melbourne and beyond. For the first event, Next Wave, Gertrude Contemporary, West Space, RMIT Design Hub and MPavilion get together to consort on invisible hands.
The first consortium event is titled 'Invisible Hnads Make Light Work: Art and Unwaged Labour,' which takes places at 6.15pm on Tuesday the 20th of October 2015. The panel is hosted by Beth Caird, sub-editor of un Magazine, and includes artists Anastasia Klose, Lou Hubbard and Liang Luscombe, writer and artist Aurelia Guo, and writer-academics Eva Birch and Jan Bryant. The panel asks: What kinds of emotional, affective and otherwise-hidden forms of unwaged labour hold up the art industry? To whom is this work relegated? And how can one strike or resist these un-unionised forms of ‘invisible’ labour?
Following the discussion, DJ and artist Lisa Lerkenfeldt will play a selection of music taking inspiration from notions of anachronism and lesser-known female music histories.
