“Free admission is not enough, we need to do more… obviously it means we have to go with art to the people.”
—Hans Ulrich Obrist, curator at the Serpentine Gallery in London, in conversation with Victoria Lynn, Director of TarraWarra Museum of Art

Essential listening for anyone interested in art, curation and culture: Hans Ulrich Obrist spoke with Victoria Lynn about what a building without walls can do for bringing art to the community. Exploring experimentation, conversation marathons, how early morning joggers use pavilions, a world after COVID-19, digital engagement, Roland Barthes, and the value of art in a crisis — this conversation is not to be missed.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
