Uncommon Knowledge: Bill Henson: The Wilderness Within: The body as the last frontier

Mon 30 Apr 2018

This is a past program.
ACCA Foyer

To launch ACCA’s 2018 lecture series, Uncommon knowledge: artists on their special interests, internationally renowned photographer Bill Henson will explore his lifelong fascination with the human figure.  Henson, who represented Australia in 1995 at the Venice Biennale, and has works in every major public collection in Australia and has exhibited widely internationally. The tension between representation, voyeurism, the gaze and the body will be further explored.



ACCA’s 2018 lecture series, Uncommon knowledge: artists on their special interests gives eight artists a microphone and an hour to speak about topics that inspire their art and thinking. Featuring a trans-generational cast of artists, Uncommon Knowledge brings together elements of history, lifestyle, philosophy, sound studies, sexuality, cultural politics and more, to challenge us to think differently about society and the world around us.

Presented by Abercrombie & Kent, these hour-long lectures will be presented monthly on Monday nights at 6pm from April through to November. Each lecture will be accompanied by a complimentary unique cocktail created by our partners The Melbourne Gin Company and Starward Whisky.
