Daphne Mayo Public Lecture

The Daphne Mayo Visiting Professorship in Visual Culture was established with initial funding from the Philip Bacon Gallery and the School. Since 2005 the Alumni Association of the University of Queensland has joined with the School and the University of Queensland Art Museum (UQAM) to support the Visiting Professorship. This association has benefited the Visiting Professorship enormously by enabling us to better connect with UQ Alumni and Friends and by ensuring its greater public visibility and impact. The Visiting Professorship is now a catalyst for dialogue and debate not only about art but also about art museums and galleries and art collecting and appreciation in the State.

Each year, a major world figure will visit Brisbane to speak about the latest trends, influences, and theories in their area of visual culture.
