HOTTOPIC (article first published : 2003-05-19)

After the huge success of the lecture block, Contemporary Practice: Artistic Relevance or Fashionable Proclivity, organised by Hillary Graham and the NSA Functions Committee, a regular, monthly discussion forum will happen at the NSA on the second Wednesday of every month at 18h30.

Titled hottopic, it will invite speakers and presentations that are relevant, controversial, and deal with contemporary culture.

All too often arts practitioners hear the criticism that visitors to museums and galleries feel that the work is inaccessible and difficult to understand. The NSA engages this criticism and offers an opportunity to the public to attend its discussions, hear more about contemporary art and offer their views on the matter.

The next hottopic takes place on June 11 and features Gifted Beauty”, a documentary film by Anne Kjersti Bjorn (Norway).

In Paris during the 30’s surrealism grew around the slogan L’amour fou - wild love. The men, like Max Ernst and Salvador Dali, became famous surrealist artists - but what about the women? A unique and rare opportunity to see this animated multi-portrait with surrealism women. A discussion will follow the 52 minute screening.

Entry is R15 (R10 NSA members, pensioners, students) and includes “hot presentations” and a complimentary drink.
