June 2014


From the Director
Welcome to our June newsletter. Currently we are gearing up for a lively second semester of events. First up is the Paul Klee mini-symposium in July, quickly followed by the opening of an enhanced and expanded version of the J.W. Power: Abstraction Création, Paris 1934 exhibition in Canberra at the National Library of Australia.

In August we have a visit from US Professors Michael Holly and Keith Moxey, who will both be giving lectures as part of our Power lecture program. October sees the equally eminent and brilliant polymath Whitney Davis travel to Australia for the first time to present  – a visit made possible by the generosity of former Power Professor Terry Smith.
