Ian Milliss: The disappearance of art: the Evatts, the arts, the webs

MC: Susan Templeman MP

Hosted by the Evatt Foundation in association with the Katoomba branch of the ALP.

Speech and video now available.

About the speaker

Ian Milliss is an artist and writer who has long argued that art is the process of constant cultural adaptation, and that this now occurs in work not usually seen as art, produced by people who do not usually describe themselves as artists. His approach emphasises the need to adapt: to evolve, to recycle the materials we appropriate, and to ensure that our culture, our society — and, indeed, ourselves — remain sustainable. Ian's early conceptualism developed into a practice based on cultural activism, working with community and political groups rather than the art market. The issues he has worked with include green bans, prisons, unionism, artists’ rights, sustainable farming, community media and arts programs (including the Australia Council’s ‘Art and Working Life’ program), heritage and conservation and climate change.

Ian has worked for trade unions, business and government, ranging from painting and installation to publishing and online media. His main recent interests have been land use, the commons, big data and open source processes, and have resulted in The Yeomans Project (with Lucas Ihlein) on agricultural innovation at the Art Gallery of NSW (2013–14); a retrospective at the Macquarie University Gallery (2006) and a joint exhibition with Vernon Treweeke at the same gallery (‘Then and Now’, 2014); another retrospective, at Artspace Sydney (2013); the formation of the Kandos School of Cultural Adaptation based on his work in the group show cementa 2013; other group shows, ranging from Monash University’s ‘Art As A Verb’ to the Redfern Biennale 2014; and a 2017 solo exhibition at Penrith Regional Gallery on the role of quarry workers in the Lewers family's modernist quest. He has written for Art Monthly Australia, the Journal of Aesthetics and Protest and RealTime Arts, and guest edited the March 2017 Artlink magazine issue on big data and data visualisation.
