Metonymy & Painting Walk and Talk 
2.00 pm Thursday 30 March 
Join us for a conversation between Dr Kari Sullivan (UQ School of Languages and Cultures), Denise Green exhibition curator Michele Helmrich, and Dr Holly Arden (UQ Art Museum) as they explore the concept of metonymy in Denise Green’s work and pose the question: can we read paintings? How might this differ from the types of visual analysis practiced by art historians and critics?

This discussion will lead audiences on a tour of the exhibition Denise Green: Beyond and Between ― A Painter’s Journey. 
(Metonymy: NOUN. The substitution of the name of an attribute or adjunct for that of the thing meant, for example suit for business executive, or the turf for horse racing. Oxford English Dictionary.)
