There has been an explosion of private art museums throughout the world, ranging from the large institutional to the small intimate house museum. Join JAHM's Charles Justin as he takes you on a journey of his recent visits to private museums in Belgium, Germany, Italy, Japan and the USA. This illustrated lecture will examine the different categories of private museums and their uniquely distinctive architecture and methods of presentation.
Exhibiting artists Taree Mackenzie and Cameron Robbins will discuss their distinctive art practices and the role that light plays in their creation. Taree Mackenzie utilises video and installation to explore the perceptual effects of colour, light and space by incorporating light and abstract forms. Cameron Robbins' artistic practice interacts with the elements and forces in nature - wind, oceans, magnetic fields and light, in the creation of his works.
