Field Study International
April 4 – Sept. 5
National Art Library Entrance
Field Study began in 1993 started by David Dellafiora, Eamon Kirwan and Benedict Phillips. During the following years, artists from different countries joined the initiative, becoming a truly international group. One of their main aims is that everyone is welcome to become a member, irrespective of their arts practice, and to contribute. Field Study sees work by individual artists as emanations and collective work as manifestations and was originally influenced by the Surrealist and Fluxus movements.
The annual Field Study International Journal was their first publication, but throughout the years the group has developed new assembling periodicals such as WIPE, ReSite and in collaboration with the Australian Disability Support Service Karingal - KART. A selection of this material will be on show.
Also on display there will be works by Erica Van Horn, Patricia Collins and Benedict Phillips as the ‘Agresiv Dislecksick’, with artwork revolving around his dyslexia. He will be giving a special lunchtime lecture on Wednesday July 27 in the V&A Sackler Centre.
