Kader Attia Teacher PD | ACCA

Kader Attia Teacher PD | ACCA

French-Algerian artist Kader Attia (born 1970) works across diverse media including collage, photography, video, sculpture and installation. Exploring ideas around the cultural exchange, appropriation, and the tangled relationship between North Africa and the West in the wake of decolonisation, Attia articulates theories of ‘repair’ and ‘reparation’ through his practice.

Explore theoretical concepts through discussion and practical art-making in a day of learning centred upon the dynamic practice of Attia, alongside the artist’s forthcoming major solo exhibition at ACCA. This next instalment in ACCA’s series of professional teacher development programs will focus on this influential artist’s sustained creative engagement with colonial histories, intercultural differences, and disorientation within the immigrant experience.

The exhibition’s focus upon colonial histories presents opportunities to explore Australia’s own colonial history and issues of decolonisation in the present-day context. This focused, full-day program will be directly aligned with the Ethical, Intercultural, and Personal and Social Capabilities embedded within the curriculum. A tailored resource will be provided for in-depth analysis of artworks, delivered in language directly communicable to students.

Presented with the Melbourne Festival in association with the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, Sydney, and curated by Rachel Kent, Chief Curator, MCA, Kader Attia is the first solo presentation of the artist’s work in the Southern hemisphere.

Open to all educators.
