Antony Gormley, Clearing V, 2009.

11km of 12.7mm Aluminium tube.

Aluminium tube. Antony Gormley.

Join us for a special series of talks and discussions where a host of acclaimed artists, scientists, architects, astronomers and anthropologists discuss the relationship between their fields and visual art.

In a conversation between the artist and the late art historian, Ernst Gombrich, Gormley alluded to the fact that he wanted his work to start “where language ends”. Inspired by the intimate conversations held by Antony Gormley in his studio with guests from a range of disciplines, this series of events invites you to unpick and consider the wide-ranging themes that have featured within his practice.

Through this series we’ll explore the relationship between cosmology and art, the social implications of sculpture, architecture as process of empowerment, and discover one of Gormley’s most ambitious works, Inside Australia.
