The World is not a Foreign Land

This exhibition takes the notions of collaboration, dialogue and influence as its departure point. It involves Indigenous Australian artists working within localised histories of widely separated areas of 'remote' Australia. Their work stakes a claim for renewal and change by making a feature of artistic relationships previously unrepresented, bridging 'untraditional' media and eclectic traditions.

PUBLIC LECTURE
Art Forum: James Lieutenant & Kate Vassallo
Wednesday, 8 October 2014 at 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Canberra Museum and Gallery Theatrette, 176 London Circuit, Canberra ACT 2601
Join artists James Lieutenant and Kate Vasallo as they discuss their installation, Mistints. Mistint paint is that which has been incorrectly mixed by a paint store and is consequently useless for its intended purpose. However, for Canberra-based artistic collaborators, James Lieutenant and Kate Vassallo, mistint paint is an abject material with inherent potential. The Mistints project has been conceived at CMAG in response to the building's architecture and civic environment. The site-responsive nature of this project and its use of unique paint colours, which have been sourced from local stores around Canberra, results in a work of art which can never be repeated.

SEMINAR
Improving knowledge exchange between scientists & decision-makers to facilitate the adaptive governance of coral dominated marin
Thursday, 9 October 2014 at 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Fenner Seminar Room, Frank Fenner Building 141, Linnaeus Way, ANU
Ecological goods and services are critical for human welfare, however, the sustainable management of these resources has been a topic of continued concern. Conventional scientific approaches to resource management based on linear causality have proven ineffective, largely neglecting the complexity and uncertainty associated with complex socio-ecological systems. One emergent framework that is believed to be capable of dealing with the uncertainty associated with complex socio-ecological systems is that of adaptive governance, a concept derived from institutional theory that focuses on the evolution of formal and informal institutional arrangements for the management of shared assets, such as a set of environmental assets that provide ecosystems services.
SEMINAR
The Social History of Colour in Medieval China: Perspectives from Independent Dunhuang, 9th to 11th centuries
Thursday, 9 October 2014 at 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM
Seminar Room, China in the World Building (188), Fellows Lane, ANU
In the mid-20th century, Chinese artists and art historians discovered a lost world of vibrant colour in the medieval-era murals from the oasis of Dunhuang. A vernacular history of cultural change was read into these murals. From the Song dynasty onwards, Chinese elites - who had embraced and celebrated a diversity of colour in the Tang dynasty and earlier - came to associate colour with vulgarity, adopting a more restricted and muted palette that supposedly reflected the refinement and moral uprightness which the literati saw as being the essential attributes of their class.

PUBLIC LECTURE
In conversation with . . . Michael Dante Mori
Friday, 10 October 2014 at 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM
Law Theatre, ANU College of Law
Michael Dante Mori, or Major Mori, is better known as the charismatic military lawyer who represented Australian Guantanamo Bay detainee David Hicks in the court battle that garnered worldwide attention. Framed by vision of prisoners confined to steel cages in Guantanamo Bay, the Hicks case was among the first that saw many people asking the question - what crime was David Hicks actually being charged with? Further, why was the United States making a distinction between 'unlawful combatants' and 'prisoners of war', and why was Australia refusing to intervene for one of its people?
