Megan Cope

Artist Talk

17 June 2017
2pm–3pm

  • Event Cost:
    Free

Join Megan Cope as she speaks about her work, Foundations II, in Material Politics: our current exhibition that features artists who use everyday materials and approaches to explore issues of ecology, inequality, surveillance, and sovereignty.  

In Foundations II, Cope brings together oyster shells, a core material used to form middens on the artist’s country, North Stradbroke Island, and cement, the material being extracted from that land to form other foundations elsewhere.

For this talk, Cope will explore this work, together with a broader discussion of her artistic practice, and the themes that have continued to impact her work.
