Proximity Festival

Public Talks

10am – 11.30am | FREE


Wake up and start your morning with caffeine-fuelled discussions, collective actions and intimate gallery tours led by interesting people worth meeting. We’ve got something to talk about, but we don’t want to bore you with the usual set-up so we’ve introduced a few distinctive ways to share it with you.

I didn’t ask to see this
Friday 30 October

Bemused, curious or downright disapproving of random acts of art in public spaces? We discuss the implications and possibilities of making living artworks in public institutions. How do we navigate the additional layer of passers-by as complicit spectators, OH&S obligations and governing agencies? Gather in the concourse for a discussion that you need to get on your feet for.

Obsessed with the record
Wednesday 4 November

Frame it, shoot it, post it, play it. How do we document one-on-one or participatory performances when fundamental to their existence is the live exchange that happens between audience and performer? Join us for a session exploring issues relating to creating legacies of live work.

Audience tours
Saturday 7 November
Register here

Not sure what to expect with Proximity performances? We turn the typical artist talk on its head and place it confidently into the hands of our audiences. This gallery tour invites you to walk around AGWA with twelve proximity participants who share their accounts of this year’s program, followed by Q&A between the artist and audience.
