Kath Inglis Artist Talk and 2020 Call Out information session

Join Kath Inglis for an Artist Talk discussing her 2019 The Collections Project research and exhibition of uncertain value on Thursday 12 September, at the Santos Museum of Economic Botany (MEB).

Kath undertook a five month research period with the Botanic Gardens of South Australia’s collection, and through the lens of ‘value’ examined the marine algae collection. In particular Kath’s new artwork provokes considerations around the impact of plastic waste on marine health and the notion of material value within the discipline of jewellery. The project not only enabled Kath to research marine algae but also afforded her the time to explore the materiality of her primary material, PVC.

This session will be followed by a in conversation with MEB Curator Tony Kanellos and Guldhouse Artistic Programs Manager Debbie Pryor about the 2020 application process and potential outcomes.
