In a series of specialized walkabouts, the Centre for the Moving Image will delve deeper into Penny Siopis’s exhibition, This is a True Story: Six Films (1997-2017), a retrospective of twenty years of filmmaking by the artist.
Over the course of a month, these weekly walkabouts will explore the multi-layered elements of Siopis’ films. the first in the series of walkabouts, This is a True Story: In the Making, launches the series with an artist-led walkabout, providing insight into Siopis’ working methodology, with a focus on materiality.
Thereafter, the specialised weekly walkabouts will look to experts whose fields of interest can unpack the multi-layered elements of Siopis’s films, exploring the use of music in her work, her fascination with memory, and the ever-present themes of migration and displacement. The ongoing series of specialised walkabout will take place every Wednesday at 3 pm from 21 March – 11 April 2018.
