Artists on ART
Many artists are reluctant to talk about their creative process, often with reason. Others have excelled in conveying indispensable ideas and insights through their writings, which can take many forms – diary jottings, lecture notes, manifestoes or treatises… Our 2020 Lecture Series focuses on artists whose written commentaries and critiques are indispensable to any well-rounded understanding of their artistic achievements. Lecturers will examine ways artists have described their practices, analysed the work of their peers, responded to pressing issues of the times, and dealt with their own doubts and fears.
1: SUNDAY 1 March
Peter Kohane, Le Corbusier
Architectural historian Peter Kohane discusses Le Corbusier (1887-1965) as a highly influential – and highly controversial – theorist and polemicist. He gives special attention to Corbusier’s late masterpiece, Ronchamp Chapel, built in 1955. Peter Kohane is a senior lecturer, Architectural Studies, at the University of New South Wales.
