Thinker in Residence

The first Art Forum for 2018 introduces SOCA's Thinker in Residence, Chris Arneaud-Clarke.
Chris lectures in Critical and Theoretical Studies at the Victorian College of the Arts, University of Melbourne, and gives public talks and lectures in Melbourne and Hobart.

In a presentation on the aesthetics of some well-known works of conceptual art such as Michael Craig Martin's An Oak Tree (1973) and Joseph Kosuth's One and Three Chairs (1965-7), Chris will suggest some overlooked implications of John Chandler and Lucy Lippard's equally well-known critical essay, "The Dematerialization of Art" (1968), which defended and attempted to explain the contemporary focus on ideas rather than objects.
