Louise Paramor, Claire Healy and Sean Cordeiro,
Wednesday 12 June, 1–2pm, Black Theatre
A panel discussion with CAUGHT STEALING artists Louise Paramor, Claire Healy and Sean Cordeiro in conversation with Dr Jaime Tsai and Dr Michael Hill.
Louise Paramor is well known for her large-scale public art commissions, which often combine formal concerns with a pop-inspired sensibility. Paramor has exhibited her work nationally and internationally regularly since 1988, and has been awarded several grants and international residencies including an Australia Council Fellowship at the Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin (1999−2000). In 2010 she won the prestigious McClelland Sculpture Survey and Award with her work Top shelf. Recently the National Gallery of Victoria commissioned Paramor to create the installation Palace of the Republic, a series of new paper sculptures that reference her earlier artistic practice, in conjunction with a survey of her recent colourful plastic assemblages.
