Updated schedule for the Intensive Program – 11th and 12th May 2010

Thank you all for responding to the call out for presentations. Below is the schedule for the intensive program.

Changes to the Program

We received a few requests for an ”informal feedback session” that would allow post grads to ask questions or put ideas up for discussion and feedback. To facilitate this we have extended the program until 3 pm on Monday the 11th May.

All issues and ideas no matters how insignificant or significant that pertain to your practice, writing or the PHD are welcome.

Hanging of work

The hanging of work for Intensive Presentations and for Sound Bite will have to take place after 4 pm on Monday the 10th or alternatively before 9:45 am on Tuesday the 11th May.

This is due to Post Graduate Reviews that have been scheduled for Monday the 10th of May between 2 pm and 4 pm in the painting department.

Sound Bite: Everyone is asked to bring work for this (1- 2 works). Work can be hung in the “Stair Well” area, in the post grad section and on any other walls.

Emma and Joel will be able to assist those who need help with hanging. Joel will be in on the Monday until 5 pm and Emma will be in on the Tuesday from 9 pm. Should you have any special requirements in relation to hanging work etc., please contact Emma at the workshop before 4 pm on Friday the 7th May. (emma.beer@anu.edu.au)

Ria will be around in the department between 4 – 5 pm on the Monday and at 9 am on the Tuesday to assist.

Invitation to Dinner: We have scheduled a “get together” dinner on Tuesday the 11th May at 7pm. A reservation has been made at the Spicy Ginger – Chinese Cuisine at Uni Lodge – 2/25 Childers St, Canberra City ACT 2601 – ph: 6162 1708.

Please let Ria know if you will be joining the party so that she can confirm numbers with the restaurant.

We look forward to seeing you all and if you have any queries please contact Julie or Ria via email: julie.brooke@anu.edu.au & elefteria.vlavianos@anu.edu.au

Dear All,

Julie Brooke and I (Ria) have volunteered to organise the next painting intensive for Tuesday 11th and Wednesday 12th May 2010.

It is usual that if you didn’t present last time then you do so this intensive, but If you did present in March and wish to again in May that’s fine as long as there’s time on the schedule.

As you can see, sessions will run from 9:45 am until 2 pm, with four, 30 minute time slots each day, allowing 6 – 8 presentations over all and providing 15 – 20 minute presentations, the remaining time for questions and discussion.

Suggestions for presentations

  • Power point
  • In front of the work
  • Other format
  • Combination of above
  • If you wish to talk about an artist, a piece of writing/ essay/ book or artwork that is feeding your current research this will be welcomed as well.

“sound bite exhibition”

Please bring one or two current paintings, drawings or other work to hang in the Painting workshop for the period of the Intensive. Work will be hung in the PG space, the Drawing Room, and the foyer at the top of the Stairs. We will schedule time to view the work and each person is asked to give a 2-minute “sound bite”, regarding theirs.

Please bring your work to the Painting Drawing Room on Monday the 10th May at 3 pm. Or, if you are off campus email either of us so we can keep a spot to hang the work on Tuesday morning.

Finally, if there are any exhibitions to be seen and that coincide with the timing of the intensives please let us know and they can be added to Wednesday’s schedule.

We must know by Wednesday the 21 April 2010 of your interest to present or not and your preferred method of presentation, so that we can arrange equipment and structure a flow to the schedule.

Please indicate if you have a particular preference for a day and time.

Email both Julie and me of your interest to present – our email addresses are: julie.brooke@anu.edu.au & elefteria.vlavianos@anu.edu.au

We look forward to hearing from you and if you have any suggestions or queries please contact Julie or me.

Regards Ria and Julie

Intense thanks!

Thanks to all who presented last week for the Intensive- everyone was terrific – you have all clearly been working really hard, and again the sessions were really stimulating. And thanks to all who contributed so thoughtfully to discussion. And special thanks to Vanessa who was mostly at a rival conference(!)and yet brought the week to a fabulous conclusion on Friday night with the  wonderful King Hits. A great way to weather a ten week term….a fabulous nights’ letting down of hair!

Melinda Hinkson was really pleased that people were so receptive to her project, which I think could have very interesting benefits for us. She is also very sensitive to your responses, so if any of you have concerns about her involvement with the group (coming to intensives etc) it would be good to let me know – just email me.

If you are keen to be part of her project and havent told her yet,  I think you should email her melinda.hinkson@anu.edu.au

Alistair was also really delighted to have been involved and is very keen to maintain this kind of interaction. Isnt he terrific? I recommend his lectures which are on Tuesdays at 10am in music lecture theatre 3.

So, that was our final intensive for 2009 but I am thinking we should have a postgrad lunch sometime before year ends- and invite some of these extras along. And have a bit of discussion about how we might do things even better next year….

That’s all fffffolks!!! see you in Sydney on Thursday? R

Intensive drinks and dinner Wednesday 27 May

Twelve people from the PGI went to dinner at the China Tea Club in Lyneham and had a few drinks and a stack of delicious dishes including Gone with the wind. (What??) Harriet and Bosco got the doggie bag. (??)

It was extremely pleasant..anyone disagree, the blog’s the place to say it.

Change of plan – Both Reading Groups to now discuss Merleau-Ponty on 29 May 2009

For various reasons, not least being difficulties some had in downloading Practical Metaphysics,  both reading groups will now discuss Jude’s selection, Eye and Mind by Maurice Merleau-Ponty at our next discussion groups; 1pm Fri 29 May, A Block.

I think Jude sent a copy to everyone if you don’t have a copy, can’t download one from here, can’t get one from the office or another PG, let me know and I’ll print one off for you on Thursday. Its a good text for everyone to read and hopefully we’ll be able to come back to Practical Metaphysics and Tony Lane later in the year.

Sorry we haven’t streamlined the posting of readings yet, better next time hopefully.

Postgrad intensive- week of May 27-29 2009

Thinking ahead to the next intensive week, I’d like to get a sense of how you all would like to do things this time around. Me feeling is these weeks are a chance for everyone to touch base and have a look at work in progress, raise discussion about the programme, give us feedback etc as well as the scheduled Reading group etc. We do need to plan venues for any work-in-progress presentations- I’m assuming for those whose studios are in town that we can look at actual work, but for those itinerants(!) it might be still a matter of showing images on screen.

We can use the Drawing Room and upstairs foyer spaces to hang work for discussion, and in some cases it might be viable to have a session in your studio- if it is large enough to fit the group, plus a few honours people who like to come along sometimes. Also, how long do each of you want for this kind of session?- please be mindful of timing as I think we need to be much stricter about staying on schedule this time- but I think that will be much easier now we have had that preliminary intro to everyone.

Maybe I’ll get Leah Bullen to send out a proposed schedule of times for WIP presentations and you can choose a time which suits. I assume we will have reading groups on the Friday usual time.

Are there any suggestions as to other things you might do that week- eg. social stuff, discussion, meetings  or maybe screenings of interesting material-( dvds) on artists or things related to your research ??? Maybe we need time for you to meet in smaller groups or one-on-one for more focussed discussion in your studios?  We’d like the programme to be driven by your interests and preferences so please let us know what you think will work most effectively to make the programme as useful to you as possible. Anyway- give all this some thought and get back to me with your ideas….thanks, Ruth
