Talks & Lectures, Opening Exhibitions, Special Events

McCulloch & McCulloch regularly present talks, lectures, open exhibitions and do special events with galleries and spaces around Australia. Our comprehensive lectures on this subject have become highly popular in both the private and public sectors. All of our own exhibitions and those we co-curate feature illustrated lectures and curator’s floor talks.

We conduct illustrated talks, lectures, forums and conversations with artists for art groups and societies, gallery guides and member groups of state, regional, public and private galleries and a wide range of public and private organisations and venues, on all aspects of Australian art including:

- Historical and contemporary

- Regional developments in Indigenous art

- Mythology in Aboriginal art

- Symbols, mark making and colour in Indigenous art

- Market trends
