* This event is now moving online as Gallery Lane Cove + Creative Studios is temporary closed due to COVID-19. Please join us for an In Conversation event for Tricia Flanagan's solo exhibition Digital Materiality - Coded Textiles which will be live streamed via our instagram page.
Taking on a slightly different form, this discussion will be streamed LIVE over on our Instagram account, Saturday morning from 11am as scheduled previously. Be sure to follow us @gallerylanecove, and make sure you tune in to the discussion to ask any burning questions you have about the exhibition.
A finissage event marking the final day of the exhibition, this conversation will reveal the concepts behind artist Dr Tricia Flanagan's cutting-edge multidisciplinary work. Learn about how her textiles practice is extended to include digital media interactivity and design, which are combined to communicate issues of sustainability. \
Dr Tricia Flanagan began her career as a fashion and costume designer. Since 1996 she has worked as a practicing artist. Her work is held in public and private collections internationally and has been exhibited in Australia, Germany, Ireland, Italy and China.
Her production includes site-specific sculpture, social sculpture, sound sculpture, sculptural installation, wearables and performance installation. Development and production of projects often involve community consultation and or engagement. Artworks are often created on location and/or through workshop development, alone or with project participants.
Flanagan often works collaboratively with artists and other professionals and presents lectures about her practice, working methodologies and specialist areas of sculpture, creative design and community arts practice.
