(Festival, News, Video Art)

Eugenia Lim and Philip Brophy
Wednesday, 26 October, 6pm
ACMI X – Level 4, 2 Kavanagh Street, Southbank

For the last Experimenta Social in this series curated by artist Emile ZilePhilip Brophy and Eugenia Lim will reflect on Australian identity, place and belonging. Using pop cultural forms as a lens to view Australian society, both Eugenia and Phil uncover latent meanings and interpretations through their video works, writing and installation. Expanding on his AFTRS Classics of Australian Cinema book that uses Priscilla Queen of the Desert as a map of Australian identity, Philip Brophy will deliver an expanded illustrated version of this book. Exploring Australia as a fluid, plural and volatile state, Eugenia will present recent works that look at local identity within the context of rapid globalisation and urbanisation.
