WRITING & CONCEPTS

DARREN SYLVESTER presents the lecture: “me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me. That is all I ever think about.” —————————————————– WRITING & CONCEPTS: Lecture Series Produced by Jan van Schaik Hosted at: ACCA, ACMI, Bus Projects, C3 Art Space, Fed Uni Arts Academy, Heide, Kings ARI, MUMA, Neon Parc, The NGV, RMIT Design Hub, The Ian Potter Museum of Art, TWMA, Margaret Lawrence Gallery, and West Space. —————————————————– DARREN SYLVESTER’S multi-disciplinary practice involves photography, sculpture, video, music and performance. Usually involving a wide range of pop culture elements and narratives, each medium is given a high-end production sheen or twist to be transformed into a discussion on contemporary ennui, pathos and mortality that is direct, yet inherent with levels of complexity. In the past he has written short stories that accompanied his exhibition catalogues that grew into writing his first feature film script in January 2000 after taking ecstasy on NYE in 1999, which was then picked up by the Australian Film Commission. He has written two further feature film scripts with Melbourne writer Anthony Carew. Together they made a 30-minute dystopian sit-com, Me in 2013 with elements of that script being turned into art fair bath towels. He has written and recorded two full length albums and is releasing his third in 2017. Sylvester was the only Australian included by Phaidon Press for their book on worldwide contemporary photography Vitamin Ph in 2006 and is represented by Neon Parc, Melbourne and Sullivan+Strumpf, Sydney. His work will be the subject of a major survey exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria in late 2018. —————————————————– WRITING & CONCEPTS is a free public lecture series designed to explore the potential of writing as both a process and an outcome. The lectures will alternate between practitioners for whom the written form is their primary professional output and practitioners whose work manifests as exhibitions or events within the domain of contemporary art. —————————————————– SEASON 3 – SCHEDULE Spiros Panigirakis Thu Apr 27, 6:00pm – RMIT Design Hub Building 100, Cnr Victoria and Swanston Streets Carlton Daniel von Sturmer Thu May 4, 6:00pm – Bus Projects 25-31 Rokeby Street, Collingwood Paul Carter Thu May 11, 6:00pm – RMIT Design Hub Building 100, Cnr Victoria and Swanston Streets Carlton Bryce Ives Thu May 18, 6:00pm – RMIT Design Hub Building 100, Cnr Victoria and Swanston Streets Carlton Darren Sylvester Thu May 25, 6:00pm – RMIT Design Hub Building 100, Cnr Victoria and Swanston Streets Carlton Anthony Carew Sat Jun 3, 3:00pm – Neon Parc 15 Tinning St Brunswick Carolyn Eskdale Thu Jun 8, 6:00pm – RMIT Design Hub Building 100, Cnr Victoria and Swanston Streets Carlton Yhonnie Scarce Thu Jul 6, 6:00pm – Monash University Museum of Art Building F, Monash University, Caulfield Campus, 900 Dandenong Road, Caulfield East Ben Eltham Sat Jul 22, 3:00pm – Heide Museum of Modern Art 7 Templestowe Road, Bulleen Natasha Johns-Messenger Thu Jul 27, 6:00pm – RMIT Design Hub Building 100, Cnr Victoria and Swanston Streets Carlton Julien Leyre Thu Aug 3, 6:00pm Federation University Arts Academy The Old Law Courts, Camp Street Ballarat —————————————————- PUBLICATION In late 2017 WRITING & CONCEPTS will launch a hard copy publication about the 2016 W&C series developed with, and published by ART+ AUSTRALIA —————————————————- WRITING & CONCEPTS is supported by the RMIT Design Hub, The RMIT School of Architecture & Design through the SRC Funds, the RMIT School of Art, Spring 1883, and MvS Architects. —————————————————– writingandconcepts.com.au/index.php/2017-speaker-series/ facebook.com/WRITINGANDCONCEPTS/ designhub.rmit.edu.au/exhibitions-programs/writing-concepts-lecture-series-2017
