A monograph of her artworks published by InIVA (2004), London includes essay by Laura Mulvey, Griselda Pollock and Guy Brett. Sutapa Biswas was central to the influential Black Arts Movement of the 1980s in the UK, when her artworks first came to prominence during the seminal and historic exhibition hosted at the ICA, London, titled, “Thin Black Line”. She is a respected leading authority on questions of subjectivity and feminisms in relation to race, gender and class within the practice of fine art and in relation to critical and historical theories of art, and in particular pertaining to questions of modernism, colonial histories (especially British) and postcolonial theories. Biswas works in a range of media including drawing, film, performance and photography. Her artworks are both conceptually and formally driven, and explore questions of temporality. They often possess a stark but poetic resonance that broadly investigates the relationship between art, history, power and politics. Biswas’s lecture will address the context of ‘making’ art and aesthetics in relation to histories of art, colonialism and power.

          Bianca Hester is motivated by an exploration of the connection between space, materiality and embodiment. Her projects are informed by sculptural and architectural processes and oriented by an engagement with the unpredictable forces of matter and time. She works in response to specific material, social and spatial conditions and builds provisional constructions and open-ended situations, often involving collaborations, events, imagery and video. Alongside this practice she teaches, writes and generates publications. Recent solo projects include ‘a world fully accessible by no living being’, Melbourne Prize for Urban Sculpture, Federation Square (winning entry), ‘big log jam,’ with Open Spatial Workshop, AEAF, Adelaide, (2011), ‘please leave these windows open overnight to enable the fans to draw in cool air during the early hours of the morning’, Helen Macpherson Smith Commission, commissioned by Juliana Engberg, curated by Charlote Day, ACCA, Melbourne (2010), ‘only from the perspective of a viewer situated upon the surface of the earth does day and night occur’, The Narrows (2009), The West Brunswick Sculpture Triennial (with the OSW collective 2009), ‘fashioning discontinuities’, the Centre for Contemporary Photography (2009) and ‘projectprojects’, The Showroom in London (2008).
