 Language: Interdisciplinary Public Forum

Description

This year, the Ian Potter Museum of Art have teamed up with their colleagues at the University of Melbourne to explore timely themes via a series of interdisciplinary forums — and you are invited to join as they engage with the theme of language.

Held to mark the United Nations International Year of Indigenous Languages, this second forum features artists, performers and researchers from a range of disciplines exploring language in its many forms. Throughout the day, speakers share insights into non-verbal and non-human forms of communication; Indigenous languages; and the relationship between language and power.

Speakers include Beth Sometimes, Amelia Turner and Shirley Turner who will introduce audiences to Apmere angkentye-kenhe (a place for language) in Mparntwe/Alice Springs; Professor Alison Lewis who will look back on the Stasi and the secret language of power, and Professor Mark Elgar, who will delve into the question of whether animals have language.

The forum also features 'What might be obvious to me may not be obvious to others', a performance lecture by artist Sam Petersen and a newly commissioned performance of Fayen d’Evie and Benjamin Hancock’s 'Essays in vibrational poetics {~~} … , … ; …' 2019.

This forum is delivered as part of the program, Inside Out, which has been generously supported by Peter Jopling AM QC, Andy Zhang and Calvin Huang.
