We’ve had an extraordinarily busy few months but we’re not letting up yet, with plenty of exciting events on the horizon as part of our Semester 2 program. We welcome you to read on to find out about the success of our department members, outstanding students and distinguished alumni.

Our program of events for the coming months is also provided in this newsletter, with more announcements to come regarding events for the latter half of Semester 2.

Before we head into the Power News, we’d just like to remind you that many of our recent events, including Michael Fried’s landmark visit to Sydney, were made possible by generous support from friends and donors. If you’re inspired by what you read here and wish to become a supporter, there’s still time to make a donation. With your help, we can continue to share our passion for ideas and the visual arts with our current audience, and future audiences.

You may already have received and responded to our Sydney Development Fund appeal letter for the Schaeffer Library – many thanks also to all of you who have done so. I’m always delighted to talk to anyone who’d like to become a supporter or renew their support for our activities. Of course, as the end of the tax year approaches, I would be remiss if I didn’t remind you that donations to the University are tax-deductible, and that you can easily donate on line via our website link here.

We thank all of those people who have helped contribute to the success of our programs and activities so far in 2013, and look forward to bringing you all the news about Power and our upcoming events and initiatives in our next newsletter due out in September 2013.

Yours,

Professor Mark Ledbury | Director, Power Institute

Indigenous art writing grant success
Power Publications has received a grant from the Copyright Agency Cultural Fund to award two new prizes for Indigenous art writing, starting in 2014.

Power Publications has received a grant from the Copyright Agency Cultural Fund to award two new prizes for Indigenous art writing, starting in 2014.

The annual major prize will be awarded to an Indigenous author for a new piece of writing on Australian art. There will also be a Dissertation prize, which will be awarded to the best Australian dissertation in the field of Indigenous art.

Art history and criticism in Australia and the Pacific region are relatively young disciplines, and these new prizes will demonstrate the Power Institute's commitment to engage with the Indigenous art community, and to renew our teaching and research in Indigenous and Australian art. Full details of the prizes will be posted on the Power website in the coming months.

Power thanks the Copyright Agency Cultural Fund for their support for this exciting new Power Publications venture!

Simryn Gill project
We’re delighted to announce that artist Simryn Gill will be working in the Schaeffer Library on a special artist's book project.

Simryn Gill’s daring plein air display in the Australian pavilion for the current Venice Biennale has drawn much attention to her complex, challenging and often beautiful work. We’re delighted to announce that after Venice concludes, Simryn will be working with us at Power in the Schaeffer Library.

Simryn has a particular fondness of the library, and will be creating an artist’s book using the serendipity of browsing and her wonderful eye for juxtapositions and incongruities – in addition to exploring the particular technical qualities of the photocopier! We are delighted that the Schaeffer is inspiring scholars and artists alike, and we look forward to presenting a conversation with Simryn in Semester 2 when the work is complete, to find out all about it!

Library restructure and refurbishment
There has been much activity at the Schaeffer Library over the last year. In the report below, Senior Librarian Tony Green gives us an update on the library's recent restructure and refurbishment.

There has been much activity at the Schaeffer Library over the last year. In the report below, Senior Librarian Tony Green gives us an update on the library's recent restructure and refurbishment, outlining how it has greatly aided the research process for staff and students alike, and benefited engagement with the space for all.

Our sincere thanks goes out to the Librarian staff Tony Green and Nicholas Keyzer for all their hard work with the extensive revamp.

Tony Green's report:

One result of the merger of Schaeffer Library and the Visual Resources Library last year was the opportunity to relocate some of Schaeffer’s collections into the old Visual Resources Library rooms. Schaeffer had faced a shortage of space for several years and had been forced to store some items off-site, and shelve other items in makeshift conditions that were not accessible to library clients.

Rather than simply expand existing collections into the newly available spaces, in May 2012 the library staff commenced a comprehensive project to refurbish the premises, reorganise the collections and rationalise their use and the use of the study spaces.

Almost 1000 books formerly held in offsite storage were returned to the library and eventually integrated into the browsing collection. A room on the mezzanine level was refurbished to accommodate large format books and materials of fragile or unusual nature, and to provide facilities for their use. The former Rare Books Room has been refurbished as a staff workroom for digital photography, scanning, book repair and binding.

Over the last Christmas break the library closed for 10 weeks to allow staff to undertake a complete stocktake and appraisal of the collections. As part of this process, most of the former reserve collection was integrated into the browsing collection, and the reserve storage space re-purposed as a pamphlet and small items collection.

Several refurbishment projects were also completed over this time including repainting most of the library, re-varnishing woodwork, repairs to electrical lighting, upgrade of the wireless network and acquisition of new furniture and equipment.

The most significant change however, was the integration of the journal and book collections, which had formerly been located in separate areas and filed using different systems. This mammoth undertaking involved the physical relocation and refilling of every item in both collections.

During this process books and journals that were not identified on the asset register were temporarily removed to the former Visual Resource Library rooms and will be assessed for future cataloguing and return to the collections. The old card asset register was removed and all information transferred to a database. This allows greatly improved management of the collections.

With the exception of the Christmas break closure, this 12-month project was undertaken whilst the library was open for business as usual, with minimal impact on clients. There have been many positive benefits for staff from the restructure, and feedback from students has been universally positive with numerous comments noting how much easier it is to use the collections, and that the physical layout of the library is now more intuitive.

In the next 12 months we hope to commence projects to digitise special parts of our collections for online access, and to extend the display area for artworks on the mezzanine level.

ISEA 2013
Power supported this year's International Symposium of Electronic Arts that has just wrapped up after a successful few weeks. Many of the exhibitions held as part of the festival are still on, with plenty of time to check them out.

The recent 19th International Symposium of Electronic Arts saw an extraordinary gathering in Sydney of artists, curators and scholars of electronic and media arts. Power was a supporter of this year’s festival, titled Resistance is Futile, which in addition to a full and exciting conference program, saw a range of important media art exhibitions hosted across Sydney.

In this review by Andrew Frost for the Guardian, some of the festival’s highlights are noted with links to exhibitions that will still be on over the coming weeks.

Farewell Thomas Berghuis
This month we farewell Dr Thomas Berghuis as he leaves the Department for an exciting new position at the Guggenheim Museum in New York.

This month, Dr Thomas Berghuis leaves the Department for an exciting new position as the Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation curator of Chinese art at the Guggenheim Museum in New York. His combination of scholarly and curatorial expertise clearly appealed to the Museum.

Thomas was first a student of Professor John Clark’s, before taking up a three-year post in the Department when John was awarded his ARC Research Professorship. In this role, Thomas taught across a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses, continuing the proud tradition of Power’s and the Department’s engagement with Asian Art.

Thomas is well known for his publication Performance Art in China (Timezone, 2007) and for his involvement in important curatorial initiatives such as Edge of Elsewhere. As Thomas is a valuable collaborator in several important research projects here (our Getty initiative and a current ARC proposal), we’ll most certainly be keeping in contact with him as a vital contributor to these future initiatives.

Thomas will no doubt be updating us on his work and projects in the US regularly, and joins a growing number of alumni now in important curatorial posts worldwide. We will miss Thomas greatly, and wish him all the best on his exciting new appointment.

Post-doctoral success – Robert Wellington at Yale Centre
Adding to our recent run of success for our post-graduate students, we congratulate PhD candidate Robert Wellington on being awarded a short fellowship at the Yale Centre for British Art in New Haven.

Adding to our recent run of success for our post-graduate students, we congratulate Robert Wellington on being awarded a short post-graduate fellowship at the Yale Centre for British Art in New Haven.

Robert is completing his dissertation this year, and has kindly provided us a glimpse into what he will be focusing on during his Yale fellowship next year, and his research in general:

I am excited to have the opportunity to be among the scholarly community at the Yale Center for British Art for a short fellowship in January 2014. Whilst there I will work alongside distinguished professors and other early-career scholars for what promises to be a vital contribution to my professional and intellectual development.


At the Yale Center for British Art, I will conduct postdoctoral research on a cycle of paintings from Marlborough House, London, that are preserved in a series of engravings held in the Center's collection. My research will facilitate an understanding of the role of image making in the formation of British historical identity after the ‘Glorious Revolution’ through strategies of appropriation, emulation and subversion of archetypal French models.

UPCOMING EVENTS
 LECTURE    |  
Professor Nora Taylor
On Wednesday 31 July the Australian Centre for Asian Art and Archaeology, with which Power is strongly linked, will be hosting the annual ST Lee lecture by Professor Nora Taylor of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

On Wednesday 31 July the Australian Centre for Asian Art and Archaeology, with which Power is strongly linked, will be hosting the annual ST Lee lecture.

The lecture will be given by Professor Nora Taylor of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and is titled The Artist, the Archive and the Historical Artifact: Contemporary Vietnamese Artists Contemplate the Past.

In her talk, Professor Taylor will discuss the contrasting ways in which two contemporary Vietnamese artists, Danh Vo and Dinh Q. Le have used historical documents dated to the American war period in their art installations as artifacts.

The talk will explore whether these artists attempt to challenge official historical narratives, or through the objects they use, provide a kind of archive of the War period as a way to provoke discussion about personal versus collective memories.

It will also address the recent project initiated by Asia Art Archive to collect documents pertaining to independent art spaces in Vietnam to highlight the role of the archive in historicising Vietnamese art. All these projects touch on the greater problem of the dearth of art historical documents and the loss of material artifacts that would enable multifaceted research in Vietnamese modern and contemporary art history.

Professor Nora Taylor is Alsdorf Professor of South and Southeast Asian Art History at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She is author of Painters in Hanoi: An Ethnography of Vietnamese Art (Hawaii, 2004 and Singapore 2009) and co-editor of Modern and Contemporary Southeast Asian Art: An Anthology (Cornell SEAP, 2012) as well as numerous articles on modern and contemporary Vietnamese and Southeast Asian art. 

The lecture will be held from 6–8pm Wednesday 31 July at the Quadrangle Refectory, The Quadrangle (A14) University of Sydney, Camperdown. Registration is not required.

For any further information however, please contact Professor Adrian Vickers, Asian Studies Program Director, adrian.vickers@sydney.edu.au

Curator Jens Hoffmann
We are proud to be co-presenting with the Art Gallery of NSW, a lecture by the innovative and influential curator, Jens Hoffman, on Wednesday 7 August at the Art Gallery of NSW.

The Power is delighted to be co-presenting with the Art Gallery of NSW, a lecture by the innovative and influential curator, Jens Hoffman, on Wednesday 7 August at the Art Gallery of NSW. To introduce you further to Jens, here is a brief look at his incredibly impressive background to date!

Currently, Jens Hoffman is Deputy Director of the Jewish Museum in New York where he oversees exhibitions, collections and public programs. In a distinguished and ground breaking career, Jens has been involved in a series of major exhibitions, including as co-curator of the 9th Shanghai Biennial from 2012 to 2013 – the inaugural exhibition at the Power Station of Art, China's first public contemporary art museum.

He also co-curated the 12th Istanbul Biennial in 2011 and the 2nd San Juan Triennial in Puerto Rico in 2009, and was guest curator for both the 9th Lyon Biennial in 2007 and Manifesta 4 in Frankfurt in 2002, and was co-curator of the first Berlin Biennial in 1998.

Jens’ unusual background in theatre gives him a very interesting perspective on curating. He is currently working on a book called The Exhibition As A Dramatic Construction, which will be published by Sternberg Press in November 2013, and Show Time, a history of exhibitions from 1990 to the present, is forthcoming from Thames & Hudson in October 2013.

Keep an eye on the Power and AGNSW website for further information about registering for the Jens Hoffman lecture on Wednesday 7 August.

 IN CONVERSATION    |  
Dr Joyce Townsend
We are delighted to be partnering with the National Gallery of Australia and ABC Radio National, to present a conversation with Joyce Townsend, Senior Conservation Scientist at the Tate, on the art of J.M.W. Turner, on Monday 12 August.

It’s rare for us to present a conservator as part of our programs, but Sydney Ideas and the Power are delighted to be partnering with our colleagues at the National Gallery of Australia, and ABC Radio National, to present a conversation with Joyce Townsend, Senior Conservation Scientist at the Tate.

ABC Radio National’s Richard Aedy with host the conversation with Dr Townsend as they discuss British artist J M W Turner's outstanding career and his enormous output of paintings, sketches, and watercolours.

The conversation will particularly focus on the research studies Dr Townsend has undertaken on the Turner artwork’s which feature in the exhibition Turner from the Tate: the making of a master, on display at the National Gallery of Australia until 8 September.

British artist, J.M.W. Turner, who came from a modest background, had innate artistic talent, driving ambition, and entrepreneurial skills. His earliest work in watercolour, which included accomplished works ready for sale, illustrations painted for the engraved book market, sea studies in oil, and exhibition paintings ready for sale, influenced everything he would paint in later life.

Dr Townsend has an international reputation for her work on the identification and deterioration of artist’s materials and on the interpretation of techniques, mainly for nineteenth century and twentieth century British art, with a recurring emphasis on J.M.W. Turner. Dr Townsend featured as the conservation expert on the J.M.W. Turner episode ‘A miscarriage of justice’, in series 2 of the BBC series Fake or Fortune.

The event is free but registration is essential. Please register online via the University of Sydney Events Calendar here.

IN FOCUS: KIM SCOTT
Event image 12850
In early June Australian novelist, Kim Scott, presented a talk as part of the Power's New Eyes, New Voices series. Our most recent intern Emma O'Brien attended the talk, and has provided us with some reflections on Kim's inspiring presentation.
In early June, Power held the second talk in its New Eyes, New Voices series, with a presentation by Australian novelist Kim Scott.

Scott chose to speak about the large collaborative canvas artwork Ngallak Koort Boodjac, created by Noongar artists for the Perth International Arts Festival.

The talk was attended by our most recent Intern from the Departments of Media and Communications, Emma O’Brien. We asked Emma to write down her reflections on Scott's talk and prepare a small Q&A with the writer himself, to provide our newsletter readers with a bit more information on the focus of Kim’s presentation. Emma has kindly prepared the following information, and we thank both Emma and Kim Scott for their time. Read on:

On Wednesday 5 June, award-winning novelist Kim Scott spoke to an intimate room as part of the Power Institute's New Eyes, New Voices initiative supported by the Copyright Agency Cultural Fund.

His subject was the spectacular canvas Ngallak Koort Boodjac, which ‘hung’ projected on the wall above him – a beautifully visceral artwork created by Noongar artists from the southwest region of WA. It was commissioned for the Perth International Arts Festival in 2006, and remains a powerful statement of cultural healing, meaning so much to so many people.

Scott spoke passionately about the roles of art and language in the communities of Western Australia. His eloquent speech was punctuated with words and phrases of the local Aboriginal language, beautiful and fleeting sounds that kept the audience rapt. He also spoke poetically about the role of art, heritage and history, saying “Art grafts contemporary society to Aboriginal roots, anchoring a shimmering nation state to its land.”

Art, Scott opined, and particularly the Ngallak Koort Boodjac canvas, has the ability to reshape heritage so that it can be shared with an audience, permeating cultural walls to bring understanding and perhaps transformation to society. He is realistic about the future of our society and the bonding of our cultures, but his optimism for both shines through.

After his talk, Scott took the time to answer a few short questions for our benefit. Here is his brief insight into the artwork, its creation and the effect it had on the community.  

As a non-arts writer, you bring unique insight to the Ngallak Koort Boodja canvas. Do you see your critique as offering a different perspective to that of traditional art critics?

I think it's very likely that I offer a different perspective to that of traditional art critics, but that is not my intention as such.

What drew you to focus on the Ngallak Koort Boodja canvas for your New Eyes, New Voices presentation?

I was drawn to focus on Ngallak Koort Boodja because its creation was part of a significant event, because it is a collaborative work and it provides an opportunity to think about and share some ideas to with the possibility of using its creation as a model for other artistic and community endeavours.

In your talk, you said that art can be utilised to heal a community. Was that the premise behind the creation of the Ngallak Koort Boodja?

I can't say that 'healing a community' was the premise behind the creation of Ngallak Koort Boodja, however it’s clear that many of the people involved with its creation, and those participating in its launch, felt that was at least part of what it resulted in or, at least contributed to.

Do you think there are creative similarities between artists and novelists?

I'm sure there are similarities in the creative work of artists and novelists, even if only in that art if about providing a language or way of expressing that which is otherwise inexpressible.

What do you find most compelling about the concept of New Eyes, New Voices?

The opportunity to engage deeply with an artwork, and to use it as a catalyst for further exploration and investigation.
