Join us for a roving Q&A artist talk with Julianne Piko and Assistant Curator Nanette Orly, as part of Julianne’s exhibition Familiar Strange.

Julianne's exhibition explores the interconnectedness of all things in a more-than-human world through material, matter and minerals. Contemplating the Anthropocene, Julianne creates sculptural pieces at the intersection of art and science. By bringing together forms and materials that surround us in the everyday, including biomaterials and repurposed waste streams, these assembled objects find a new relevance and is sure to be an excellent basis for a fascinating discussion.

What to expect: this will be a roving event facilitated by MAMA Curatorial staff, held within the exhibition space of Brindley Galleries, Level 2. Museum pause stools will be available.

Julianne Piko is a multidisciplinary artist based in North East Victoria. Working across sculpture, film and installation, Julianne has a keen interest in the interconnectedness of things, her artwork reflects a desire to redefine ecological perspectives and the human-nature balance.
