Head across from ACCA to the Victorian College of the Arts for ART150 Forums: Claire Lambe coinciding with ACCA’s major exhibition Claire Lambe: Mother Holding Something Horrific. As part of this free series held throughout the year, different artists discuss their work and ideas, followed by a Q&A.
Often drawing attention to the ways in which power might be signified through popular culture, Claire Lambe engages with the material and transformative possibilities of sculpture. In her work Lambe addresses the relationships between object/form and image/photograph to unsettle conventional notions around gender and class. Trained as a sculptor, and known for her strange and often abject sculptural forms, Lambe’s work engages the female body to address underlying histories of sexuality, violence and social discontent.
Admission: Free, bookings essential
