Adelaide Contemporary Experimental
17 June 2023
1:00pm to 2:00pm
Influenced by his mother’s own art therapy programs in hospitals, aged care and community centres, Kaspar Schmidt Mumm’s practice is based in a belief in the rehabilitative qualities of art.
His first major solo exhibition, ROCKAMORA, builds upon Schmidt Mumm’s experimentation with absurdist and comical forms of art-making that feature fantastical representations of other worldly beings.
The multidisciplinary artist is newly returned from Berlin, where he is currently studying a master’s degree focussed on the intersection of contemporary art and social work at the city’s Universität Der Künste.
Join Schmidt Mumm in conversation with Micheal Do, curator of contemporary art at the Sydney Opera House, for a talk that speaks to his process of applying and delivering his first solo gallery presentation ROCKAMORA.
Michael Do is one third of the 2023 Porter Street Commission selection panel.
