School of Architecture Media Studies Guest Lecture Series: Todd McMillan, 'Sleep Well'

14 February 2018 | 10am


Room D612

Todd McMillan is a Sydney-based artist whose photography, film and video works operate at the crossroads of conceptual art, modernism and literature. In his works, acts of endurance and repetition mediate questions of meaning and, ultimately, purpose. The attempt, however awry it may go, to make sense of the world is given poetical importance. What we see when we look at the work of Todd McMillan are lives - human, fallible, and yet intrinsically striving, trying to negotiate injury, obstacle and the barrier of empty time.

In 2013 Todd McMillan's film and video works were the subject of a major solo exhibition at MONA, Hobart, titled Ten Years of Tears. In 2006 he won the prestigious Helen Lempriere Travelling Art Scholarship. Recent exhibitions include: New Matter (2016), Art Gallery of NSW, Sydney and The Alchemists: Rediscovering Photography in the Age of the Jpeg (2015), Australian Centre for Photography, Sydney.
