Members of the public, academics, and students are warmly invited to attend this one-day symposium featuring talks on the place of contemporary Australian visual arts and cultural production in contributing to diplomatic relations, economic and cross-cultural exchange between Australia and the world. All participants are encouraged to contribute to discussion which will be loosely anchored in critical responses to the Royal Academy’s Australia exhibition but range over many aspects of Australian history, politics, and culture.
To be opened by Mr. Geoffrey Conaghan, Agent-General for Victoria.
Convenors: Professor Kate Darian-Smith (University of Melbourne) & Dr Ian Henderson (King’s College London).
