REALTIME IN REAL TIME

 

SUN 21 OCT, 1 – 6PM

 

Unfolding over 5 hours, RealTime in real time will be a continuous, informally- facilitated open conversation that will evolve, via chat and micro-performances, charting the remarkable transformation of the art experience over the last quarter century. How have we responded as audiences and, in RealTime the national arts magazine, as writers?

Join the RealTime Editors, writers from across Australia, artists and readers for this all-too-rare opportunity to drop in any time, stop the clock and reflect on where we’ve been, in phases of approximately the following durations:

 

1 – 2PM: What was that: 1994 – 2018? Active recall, telling moments

Share reveries, shocks & revelations: technological, cross-artform, cross-cultural & hybrid, relational, intellectual, sensory and perceptual.

 

2 – 3PM: The critic tested: putting change into words

Dialoguing with artists and readers, writers reflect on adapting to the demands on their knowledge and responsiveness made by mutating artforms and emergent issues.

 

3 – 4PM: RealTime and the place of the space

Prompted by visiting key moments from the Performance Space archive, this exchange gauges the critical role of contemporary art centres as homes for and agents of change.

 

4 – 4.20PM: Eat/drink/talk

 

4.20-6PM: The big picture 1994-2018, the real story?

In the face of art done over by politics, diminished reviewing and archival challenges, how deep, enduring and sustainable are the innovations and cross- cultural engagements of 1994-2018? What to regret, what to celebrate?
