The Talks

Tuesday 10 October, 6pm: Art < > Film,

In this first talk we will examine the relationship between cinema and painting. The focus will be on a range of artists, films and directors including Edward Hopper, Alfred Hitchcock, Caravaggio, Martin Scorsese, Psycho and the Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Tuesday 17 October, 6pm: Winslow Homer and Cullercoats

Winslow Homer is one of America's most important artists. We will trace his development from a printmaker in the American Civil War through to his Maine seascapes at the beginning of the twentieth century. We will also consider the influence that his time in Cullercoats (1881-1882) had on his artistic development.

Tuesday 24 October, 6pm: Art Nouveau

Heavily influenced by the natural world, Art Nouveau was a design style that spread through Europe and America from the 1880s up until World War One. We will look at a large range of art, architecture and design from London, Glasgow, Vienna, Brussels, Paris, New York and Barcelona.

Tuesday 31 October, 6pm: Australian Impressionism and the Heidelberg School

Images of Sydney, Melbourne and the Australian natural landscape shaped the work of the Australian Impressionists. Artists in this talk will include, Tom Roberts, Frederick McCubbin, Arthur Streeton, Jane Sutherland, Charles Conder and John Peter Russell.

Tuesday 7 November, 6pm: Art Deco

From New York to Newcastle, Mumbai to Melbourne, Art Deco is a truly international style. Flourishing in the 1920s, Art Deco was initially synonymous with glamour, luxury and decadence. After the Great Depression the style was often used in mass production. It's influence was widespread and could be seen in cinemas, architecture, jewellery, ceramics, glass, transport, industrial design and graphics.

Tuesday 21 November, 6pm: Metropolis

Fritz Lang's 1927 film is a hugely influential, science fiction classic, set in a dystopian 21st century . We will examine a range of ideas and themes that are present in the film and also gauge its broader cultural and historical significance.

Tuesday 28 November, 6pm: Frank Lloyd Wright

Frank Lloyd Wright created a distinctly American architecture influenced strongly by nature and the environment. Fallingwater, Robie House, Ennis House, the Johnson Building and the Guggenheim Museum will all be considered in this talk.

Tuesday 5 December 6pm: Graffiti

Is it art or is it vandalism? Is graffiti destroying our cities or making them more interesting places to live? We will look at examples of graffiti from history as well as the present and examine a range of themes, issues and debates relating to this controversial art form.
