OLSEN Gallery is proud to announce Marisa Purcell’s involvement as a panelist for the Belvoir Street Theatre on August 16, 2017.
There are countless theories as to where ideas come from. Writer and media theorist Stephen Johnson believes “chance favours the connected mind” — that is, by randomly stumbling across a piece of information, we can improve our own ideas. Film maker David Lynch says one can “catch ideas from daydreaming” while researchers Chan and Schunn suggest incremental thinking can be crucial for innovation.
On this multi-disciplinary panel, join an abstract painter, a philosopher and a feminist international relations scholar as they explore where their ideas come from.
How did they know what to focus on? How do they keep inspired and not get distracted? And in a culture focused on money, commodities and status, how do they stay committed to pursuing the creative and the intellectual?
This panel is designed to get you thinking about your own ideas and what to do with them, as well as learn a bit about women soldiers fighting on the frontline, why brown paint is beautiful and whether children really are innocent.
