International Art Education Issues: A Dialogue

Graeme Sullivan

Graeme Sullivan has been messing with art for quite a while and depending on the role, be it teacher, artist, researcher, artwriter, or administrator, will use combinations of creativity, information, persuasion and streetsmarts to achieve personal and collective ends. To 'excite others about art' is a useful personal goal that shapes all of the positions Graeme has served in over the years. Prior to taking up the role as Director of the School of Visual Arts, Pennsylvania State University in 2010 he served as Professor of Art Education at Teachers College, Columbia University, 1999-2010, which included a period as Chair of the Department of Arts and Humanities.

Lauren Berkowitz

Lauren Berkowitz is an Australian installation artist, working mostly with ephemeral and site-specific works that evoke the passage of time and our place within it. Berkowitz's art is one of retrieval, of natural and found materials, of modernist art from the 60's and 70's as well as connections to her Jewish heritage. Often inspired by the landscape but troubled by its degradation, she recycles materials and themes into environmental narratives as an act of regeneration.

Patricia Piccinini

Patricia Piccinini is at the forefront of contemporary Australian art. From her early 'Protein Lattice' images, depicting a human ear growing on a mouse, to her recent 'Skywhale', Piccinini has continually created highly topical and engaging works which question our modern relationship to the laboratory. Exploring notions of maternity and connection through increasingly 'unnatural' scientific organisms, her work can be simultaneously unsettling yet tender.
