2017 Hancock Fellow Lecture: Pae White

 Registration is closed for this event
Lecture by Pae White

NEW DATE: Saturday 16th December, 5pm. 

The ATW is delighted to announce American artist Pae White as the 2017 Hancock Fellow. The Hancock Fellow, established by the Tapestry Foundation in 1998 in honour of former Chairman Arnold Hancock OBE, allows opportunities to bring internationally recognised artists in tapestry, textile and design to visit the ATW and share their expertise. 

Pae White (b. 1964, lives and works in Los Angeles) is an internationally recognised artist best known for her large-scale machine-loomed tapestries and immersive site-specific installations in a variety of media. Her practice merges art, design, craft and architecture to create works that transcend the traditional boundaries between these fields. At the heart of Pae’s practice is an interest in capturing fleeting beauty, and challenging the viewer’s understanding of the everyday.  

For her free public lecture at ATW, Pae will provide an insight into her esteemed career, and focus on some recent projects and exhibitions. This includes her upcoming participation in the inaugural NGV Triennial 2017. Pae’s visit to Melbourne has been made possible by a partnership between ATW and the NGV.
