Join the exhibiting artists Fiona Lee, Dani Marti, and Anne Zahalka as they discuss their working process for creating the works on display in THE ART OF PROTEST exhibition. This online artist talk will be facilitated by Newcastle Art Gallery's Collection and Exhibitions Officer, Lisa Kirkpatrick.

About the artists:

Fiona Lee
is a political artist and climate justice activist working across non-violent direct action and art forms of installation, photography and video. Her work is an unapologetic act of resistance, often emblazoned with ugly truths. Fiona, like many others, is tired of political promises and uses various forms of communication to hold governments and companies to account.

Dani Marti 
was born in 1963, Barcelona, Spain. He lives and works in Sydney, Australia, and Glasgow, Scotland. Marti works across video, installation, and public art. His unorthodox woven and filmic works turn to wider notions of portraiture and sexuality in Modernism, Minimalism, and geometric abstraction.

Anne Zahalka
 is one of Australia’s most highly regarded photo-media artists having exhibited extensively in Australia and overseas for over thirty years. She has held over 40 solo exhibitions and her work is included in all major museums in Australia. Zahalka’s work has often explored cultural and gendered stereotyping, challenging these with a humorous and critical voice. She deconstructs familiar images and re-presents them to allow other figures and stories to be represented that reflect on diversity and difference.
