Q&A and Play with Harriet Body


Q&A and Play with Harriet Body

Public Program

Wednesday 27 March 2024

12:00PM - 1:00PM




We do a lot of talking about how good art is for you. This time let's experience some of the good with Harriet Body.

Accompanied by Program and exhibitions coordinator Hannah Gee, this Q&A and Play is exactly what it sounds like - asking the artist questions while we sit around and make, play, and ponder materials. Join us to stitch and sew, and chat about ideas, and take some time to flex your mind in a meaningful way.

Any children below the age of 16 years must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

A bit about Harriet, if you don't know:

Harriet Body's art practice is centred around care, slowness, and community. In her studio she works with media that broadly spans across textiles, ceramics, and installation. Her creative process is slow and meditative. Through the repetition of mark-making or form-shaping, her work is all about watching something grow, and then end.

Harriet's socially engaged art practice involves creating community and exploring collaborative art making in a range of different contexts. She is currently examining motherhood as a conceptual underpinning to her socially engaged artwork. Harriet also works in community programming and education at the National Gallery of Australia

Harriet’s practice is a quiet and determined protest that is in direct opposition to capitalist and patriarchal structures of speed, greed and individualism.

Harriet holds an MFA (research), for which she received an Australian Postgraduate Award, and a BFA (first class) from the UNSW School of Art and Design. She received major project funding from CreateNSW in 2015, 2018, and 2021. She was a finalist in the NSW Emerging Visual Arts Fellowship in 2019 and was awarded the Hazelhurst Art on Paper Prize in 2017.
