Panel Discussion: Emotional geography, memory and the personal
Wednesday 15 March 6.00 for 6.30 pm

How does place, memory and the personal influence contemporary art? What role does emotional geography play in Denise Green's work, currently on display at UQ Art Museum? Green references, for instance, the Ardennes forests that witnessed the Battle of the Bulge in World War II and Manhattan's memorial site of Ground Zero. Join artists and academics A/Prof. Marian Drew and Prof. Ross Gibson, musician and academic A/Prof. Dolly MacKinnon and exhibition curator Michele Helmrich in a conversation exploring emotional geography 

Associate Professor Marian Drew is one of Australia's most significant contemporary photographic artists. Her practice, explores conservation, the human impact on the environment and is characterised by innovation and exploration of photo-media.

Professor Ross Gibson is Centenary Professor of Creative & Cultural Research at the University of Canberra. In this role he works collaboratively to produce books, films and artworks and he supervises postgraduate students in similar pursuits.

Associate Professor Dolly MacKinnon works in Early Modern History at The University of Queensland. Her research background spans history and music, and her cultural history research, teaching, and service concentrate on the marginalised and institutionalised by analysing the mental, physical (including material culture) and auditory landscapes of past cultures.
