Webinar: Travelling Light with Exhibition Artist Hannah Quinlivan

6 September 2017
12.30 pm to 1.30 pm


Join the Alumni Community for a webinar discussion and Q&A session with Hannah Quinlivan, Travelling Light exhibition artist.

Drawing moves between materials like steel, the body and voice in the work of artist Hannah Quinlivan. Working in collaboration with classically-trained vocalists and dancers, Travelling Light explores the notion of adaptation in a time of constant motion. The question of movement seems to haunt our times. Some move freely while others are forced to stand still – creating new types of tension. The exhibition based on a series of dance, movement, sound and sculptural urban interventions developed in Berlin, will culminate at the Deakin University Gallery at Burwood Campus.

About Hannah Quinlivan

Hannah Quinlivan’s practice is concerned with materializing structures of feeling. Her work explores processes of remembering and forgetting, and attempts to understand how affect holds together and functions. Quinlivan’s practice spans multiple media and materials, and interrogates how our individual, internal processes of feeling and remembering are related to broader social moods or atmospheres.

Quinlivan is currently pursuing doctoral research in visual arts at The Australian National University and was a visiting artist at Colorado State University in April-May 2017. In 2017, she held major exhibitions at the Centre for Art and Urbanistics in Berlin, Canberra Museum and Art Gallery, The National Portrait Gallery of Australia and Hong Kong Art Central. In the last five years, she has exhibited in Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, the United Kingdom and Germany. She is represented by Flinders Lane Gallery, Melbourne, and .M Contemporary, Sydney.
