The Bureau of Ideas at AGWA
The Bureau of Ideas has held provocative symposiums in cafés and pubs since 2003. Now you can participate in The Bureau of Ideas in AGWA’s Manhattan Lounge during AGWA Nights. Participants hear from two learned UWA Professors and are then offered the opportunity to discuss and debate ideas in an open and encouraging forum.
Forum: Unspoken New York
Chairperson: Julian Goddard
Professor Michael Levine, Philosophy, UWA – “Susan Sontag, New York, Photography”
Professor William Taylor, School of Architecture, Landscape and Visual Arts, UWA – “The photogenic city: New York and street photography”
Perth-based composer and sound artist Sam Gillies presents an intriguing melange of pieces by New York’s premier composers, in his set entitled 21st Century Composers. The music will round off the triad of visual, spoken and sonic art and add an exciting new element to the Bureau of Ideas at AGWA.
Date: Friday 22 February
Time: 5.30 – 10pm, discussion commences 7pm
Location: Manhattan Lounge
