Sydney College of the Arts will host the panel discussion Intersections: Indigenous art in the Contemporary, as part of the 2013 artalks program on Wednesday 17 April, from 12 to 1pm. The panel discussion, chaired by SCA Senior Lecturer, Dr Danie Mellor, will feature presentations by key Australian art identities.

The Blak Douglas (aka Adam Hill), MFA candidate Janelle Evans and the University of Sydney curator Matt Poll, will talk about their art practices and reflect on the broader context of contemporary indigenous art in Australia.

Hosted by SCA, the event has been organised by the SCA Student Society (SCASS) as a part of the University of Sydney Union’s 2013 Indigenous Festival.

The panel discussion will be accompanied by an exhibition at the Verge Gallery, showcasing collaborative works made by Eora College and Sydney College of the Arts students. The exhibition will open on Thursday 18 April, 6 to 8pm, and will be on display from Thursday 18 April to Friday 3 May.
