How do we tell the story of what it is to be human? It’s a question that every age and every culture has addressed. And where better for an artist to begin such an exploration than with the human figure itself.

From the imprint of a hand in the earliest cave paintings to 21st century digital modelling, the depictions of ourselves, our loved ones, our enemies, our gods and goddesses, are arguably the most eloquent illustration of the human condition.

In 2019, the Society’s Art Appreciation lecture series will study how we look at ourselves and in what ways. With the nude we embody physical beauty and human frailty: the ancient Greeks, Rubens, Lucian Freud. The portrait reveals personality and power: Van Dyck, Gainsborough, Picasso. Social revolution, political upheaval and protest all find expression in the human form.

Over 36 weeks, in lectures by 31 distinguished curators and art historians, Being human: the figure in art, will wrestle with one of the greatest challenges for an artist. How to show us as we are – and who we are.

The competition for audience and attention over the last 25 years has driven the emergence of the largest and most spectacular gallery projects ever built. Commissioning ‘star-chitects’ and borrowing tactics from shopping malls and airports, galleries from the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao to the Tate Modern have adapted to a new landscape of art tourism, big business and Instagram. But how big is too big? What is gained and lost in this race for scale? What is a ‘star-chitect’ anyway? This lecture presents a candid review of some the world’s largest and most recognisable gallery projects, and their architects as designers, media personalities and brands.

Art essentials 2019: Lino printing

26 October 2019, 10.30am

This month we will explore the potentials of lino printing. Lino printing is a simple and effective way to make a set of prints. Detailed designs can be cut out of the lino to make several identical prints in one colour. In this class, we will experiment with the Reduction Method, used by artists such as Picasso to create unique one-off prints. With this technique, you will design and cut your print. A first impression will be made in one colour. You will then proceed to cut away from your image in stages, printing in a different colour layering each colour on top of the last. Brenda will guide you through this process and you will go home with an exciting and unique set of coloured prints.


Join art critic and historian Christopher Allen and TV presenter and former foreign correspondent Jane Hutcheon for a discussion on art, culture and politics and the influence of these factors in two fascinating countries – Iran and Israel. Christopher, focusing on Iran and the Silk Road, will explore the historical influence on Iran’s art and culture today while Jane will unravel the complex history of Israel and provide insight into the art and culture that remains today.

In the footsteps of Michelangelo

31 October 2019, 10.30am

His life, his work and his legacy

Michelangelo Buonarotti, who in his own lifetime was known as “Il Divino” – the divine one, is perhaps the most famous, and some say the greatest, artist who ever lived. His art is the culmination of a specifically Florentine artistic tradition and his stamp is indelibly inked into the psyche of Renaissance art so that all others who came after him were unable to escape his influence. Join Lorraine Kypiotis, Education Outreach Coordinator and Senior Lecturer in art history and theory at the National Art School, Sydney as she explores the life, the work and the legacy of this great master.


Whether visiting the Mona Lisa at The Louvre Museum, a Turrell Skyspace in LA or Monet’s 'Waterlillies' at Chichu, the spaces in which we encounter art are critical in shaping our experience of it. Recognising the combination of environment, atmosphere, anticipation and audience, artists and curators continue to challenge the traditional space of the gallery in search of experience and impact. So how have architects responded? This lecture explores some of the extreme demands of contemporary art practice on gallery design, and the significance of architecture in creating our experience of art through spaces both singular and sublime.

One hundred demons on parade: an introduction to Japan supernatural
Melanie Eastburn, senior curator of Asian art, Art Gallery of NSW

From the pleasure quarters of Edo period Japan to the Reiwa era that began on 1 May 2019, the exhibition 'Japan supernatural' brings to life almost three centuries of exceptional art. While stories about strange creatures, events and experiences have long been shared, it was in the Edo period that the paranormal beings of Japan began to take their current forms. This lecture introduces this exciting exhibition and explores the dynamic evolution of shapeshifting tricksters, curious phenomena, sentient household objects and ghosts in Japanese art.

A brief history of yōkai: the evolution of Japan supernatural
Zack Davisson, writer and manga translator

As the earliest visitors to the country realised, one cannot separate Japan from its ghosts. Japan’s ghosts and monsters—called yūrei and yōkai—are part of the deep magic of the nation and culture, infused into every story, product, holiday and activity. They are constantly evolving, from the invisible, formless manifestations of evil energy called mononoke, to the eight million gods and monsters of the Edo period. Artists like Toriyama Sekien collected and correlated these yōkai into characters with names and stories. With each era old yōkai retired and new yōkai were born to meet the needs of an ever-evolving society. No matter how bright the lights of modernity shine, there is always something there, lurking in the dark.

This program is presented in partnership with the Japan Foundation


Who are the mischievous shapeshifters, fiendish imps and vengeful ghosts found in the various expressions of Japanese culture and why do they continue to haunt these worlds?

For centuries, these phenomenal beings – including yōkai and yūrei – have populated Japanese folklore, and the story of their transformation and popularisation has come to echo the ‘spirit’ of Japan. Held in association with the exhibition 'Japan supernatural' at the Art Gallery of NSW, this lecture series highlights key ideas related to the representation and history of the supernatural world in Japanese cultural practices, from art to film, literature, theatre and contemporary culture.

Tickets include two lectures per session and refreshments during intermission.

This program is presented in partnership with the Japan Foundation.

Whether visiting the Mona Lisa at The Louvre Museum, a Turrell Skyspace in LA or Monet’s 'Waterlillies' at Chichu, the spaces in which we encounter art are critical in shaping our experience of it. Recognising the combination of environment, atmosphere, anticipation and audience, artists and curators continue to challenge the traditional space of the gallery in search of experience and impact. So how have architects responded? This lecture explores some of the extreme demands of contemporary art practice on gallery design, and the significance of architecture in creating our experience of art through spaces both singular and sublime.

From LACMA to the MoMA, the most recognisable galleries in the world present their incredible stories through architecture that has evolved over decades. By contrast, galleries like The Getty in LA, or MAXXI in Rome aim for the timelessness of culture by presenting a whole ‘world-at-once’ experience through a tightly controlled single architectural language.
This lecture will examine the complex roles of the contemporary gallery from archive and cultural chronicler to future-facing cultural producer, and the expression of these roles through architecture and our spatial experience of the gallery.

The sublime architecture of the Moors, with its imprint of Islam, has hugely contributed to the allure of Moorish history and artistic expression. Discover how an outstanding cultural legacy found in Andalusia (southern Spain) and Morocco, incorporating Berber and Arab traditions, developed in the wake of Islam’s spread across north Africa and the Iberian Peninsula, in the 7th and 8th centuries CE. This vibrant culture lasted for up to 800 years in Al-Andalus, influencing the destiny of Spain, and up to the modern era in Morocco.


Phenomenal beings: The spirits of Japan

09 November 2019, 2.00pm

Strange stories from the popular art of Edo - and Meiji-period Japan
Lucie Folan, curator of Asian art, National Gallery of Australia

During the Edo (1603–1868) and Meiji (1868–1912) periods there was great public enthusiasm for supernatural narratives, as expressed in popular games, theatrical productions, literature and the visual arts. Many artists depicted ghosts, demons and magical beings in scenes that range from the bizarrely humorous to the grimly terrifying. This lecture discusses iconic supernatural images by Katsushika Hokusai (1760–1849), Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1798–1861), Kawanabe Kyōsai (1831–89), Tsukioka Yoshitoshi (1839–92) and Shirai Toshinobu II (1866–1903), and the ancient folktales, religious traditions and unsettling contemporary events that inspired them.

The spirit(s) of modern Japanese fiction
Rebecca Suter, associate professor, School of Languages and Cultures, University of Sydney

This lecture explores the portrayal of monsters and ghosts in modern Japanese literature. I focus in particular on yūrei (ghosts), yōkai (spirits/demons) and a third, more diffuse category that I call, after contemporary novelist Murakami Haruki, achiragawa (the other side). Elucidating the way in which the liminal and ambiguous nature of modern Japanese spirits lies at the core of both the entertainment value and the critical potential of the works I examine, I show how fantastic literature reflects and affects the ‘spirit’ of modern Japan and its complex relationship with Western culture.

Ghosts of pasts and futures
Mikala Tai, director, 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art

Tracing exhibitions of contemporary Japanese art at the Art Gallery of NSW, this lecture examines the important role that art and culture has played in developing Australian-Japanese ties. From the ground-breaking exhibition 'The Hiroshima' panels in 1958 to 'Japan supernatural' in 2019, ghosts have been an artistic symbol used to examine the past and fantasise about the future. Their symbolic power has been uniquely Japanese, but also fundamentally humanist as they speak to the concerns and cravings of us all.

Ludic techno-spiritualism in Japan
Yuji Sone, senior lecturer, Department of Media, Music, Communication and Cultural Studies, Macquarie University

This talk focuses on Japanese media artist Etsuko Ichihara, who creatively uses digital media and robotic technologies to explore Japanese traditional beliefs in the spirit and the supernatural in her recent works 'Digital shaman' project (2015), 'Namahage' in Tokyo (2017) and 'The festival of virtual currency offerings' (2019). Using the notion of ‘ludic techno-spiritualism’, I place Ichihara’s work in the larger context of cultural connections between spirituality, spiritualism, the supernatural and digital technologies, such as a recent cultural event in Japan involving a drone Buddha and a robot funeral.

Art Nouveau: Ahead of the curve

21 November 2019, 1.00pm

Popular in Europe and the United States from 1890 – 1910, Art Nouveau was a decorative style that influenced architecture, fine art, illustration, advertising, jewellery, glass and furniture design. It was a new style for the coming century, rejecting the dated, historic references of the past – a 'new art'.

While a rather short lived movement, Art Nouveau has left a lasting impression on design. Visitors to Paris continue to marvel at the graceful, organic iron and glass structures by Hector Guimard, at the entrance to the Paris metro underground. Or Victor Horta’s definitive examples of Art Nouveau architecture in Brussels with their abstracted vines, stained glass and mosaics. Join Claudia Chan Shaw for an intriguing look at this most elegant of design movements, celebrating the work of Alphonse Mucha, Louis Comfort Tiffany, René Lalique, Victor Horta, Hector Guimard and more.




Ildiko Kovacs: extraordinary colour

21 November 2019, 11.00am

Join Sioux Garside, Curator of 'Ildiko Kovacs - the DNA of Colour' in conversation with Ildiko Kovacs as they offer insight and background into this important and singular contribution to contemporary Australian art. 'Ildiko Kovacs: The DNA of colour' will be available for purchase and signing in the Gallery Shop at the conclusion of this event.

Supernatural characters: defining identities through Japanese narratives
Mio Bryce, head of Japanese studies and senior lecturer, Department of International Studies Languages and Cultures, Macquarie University

What does the supernatural represent in Japan? Why do we still have mythical ‘others’ in a period dominated by advanced technology? Japanese popular culture in the Heisei period (1989-2019) is characterised by colourful, diverse forms of supernatural protagonists, much like the other yōkai-ridden periods Heian (794-1185) and Edo (1603-1868). The prevalence of, and interest in the supernatural may suggest a specific psyche and social ecology in these periods. Focussing on issues of precarious Japanese identities, I discuss the characterisation and transition of the supernatural from the Heian to Heisei using novels, manga and anime, such as the 'Tale of Genji' and 'Inuyasha'.

Nature, poems and spirits: the supernatural reality in Japanese arts
Chiaki Ajioka, art historian, writer and curator

The Japanese love of nature is inextricably linked to the country’s prevailing practice of poetry. In composing poems at official or private occasions, the poet would project his or her personal emotions onto specific descriptions of natural objects or phenomena. Many of these poems have been handed down from the eighth century to present day. This lecture introduces some of the ways poetic iconography was disseminated through the arts, revealing the inherent anthropomorphic view of nature in Japan and how certain images have been preserved as cultural memory.

Coalescing forces: encounters with the spirit world in Japanese cinema
Kate Jinx, director of programming, Golden Age Cinema, in conversation with Simonne Goran, festival programmer, Japanese Film Festival

In this conversation, film curators Kate Jinx and Simonne Goran discuss the supernatural, spiritual and religeo-aesthetic concepts presented in Japanese film and anime. From folkloric belief systems to disembodied spirits of the digitised era, they draw on seminal works by Nobuo Nakagawa, Hayao Miyazaki and Mamuro Oshii among others to highlight the artistic insertion of these themes through a cinematic application of imagery and narrative. Looking at the ever-evolving, diverse landscape of Japanese spirituality from a Western context, this talk will focus predominantly on film and anime’s ability to form new meaning, experiences and associations that both entertain and invite contemplation.
