Peta Clancy & Nicholas Mangan

Peta Clancy and Nicholas Mangan will talk about their work in short presentations and together a Q&A will follow. Each artist will address their specific research areas which encompass themes including hidden histories of colonisation and climate change. Through introducing their individual practices, the talks will also consider their own teaching approaches in the studio, and ways in which their work may be referenced in the classroom.

Nicholas ManganNicholas Mangan

Nicholas Mangan’s practice is driven by the desire to make sense of the world by unpacking histories and possible narratives that surround specific contested sites and objects. This investigation explores the unstable relationship between culture and nature, evidencing the flows of matter, energy and ideologies that are produced through the tension of these two realms. A tropical mine in a conflicted state whose local inhabitants used coconuts as fuel in their resistance, a strip-mined island-nation in bankruptcy that took refugees in return for payment from the Australian government, the island of stone money that exemplified money as a social technology, and a geological sample of the earth’s oldest crust have each lent material to this process of dissection and reconfiguration. By rerouting each of these stories, new forms and latent narratives are unearthed.

Solo exhibitions include Termite Economies Sutton Gallery, Melbourne, Australia (2018), Limits to Growth at Kunst Werke Berlin (2017),  IMA Brisbane and MUMA Melbourne (2016), Other Currents, Artspace Sydney (2015), Ancient Lights, Chisenhale Gallery, London (2015). Group exhibitions include, 74 million million million tons Sculpture Centre, Long Island City, New York, USA (2018), Manipulate the World, Mordern Museet Stockholm, Sweden (2017), Let’s Talk About the Weather: Art and Ecology in a Time of Crisis, Sursock, Beirut 2016. Mangan has been awarded numerous international residencies, including Recollets Artist Residency, Paris, in 2011 and the Australia Council’s New York Green Street Residency in 2006. In 2007 he was a recipient of the Anne and Gordon Samstag International Visual Arts Scholarship, resulting in postgraduate studies at Universität der Künste in Berlin, Germany.

Art History presentation
Luke Smythe will discuss his approach to teaching students about the key developments in the recent histories of art, design and architecture. Learning about each of these histories and the social developments they relate to, give students a clearer understanding of what it means to work in creative practice and why it is that creativity is so important to our lives.
