ATLANTIC PROJECT | Stubb’s Dingo + The Cooks New Clothes

The Melville, Royal William Yard

14.30—15.00 Sunday 30 September


Tickets: Free, but capacity for the performance lecture is limited so booking is essential


Stubb’s Dingo is a performance lecture delivered by art historian Jessyca Hutchens and human geographer Tamara Murdock. Addressing the ‘dingo' in George Stubbs’  Portrait of a Large Dog (1772), commissioned after Cook’s first voyage, they will present multiple iterations of the dingo that both pre-date and follow the invasion and colonisation of Australia.


Following Stubb’s Dingo, experience an outdoor procession performed on the banks of the River Tamar, led by Khadija von Zinnenburg Carroll,  Keren Ruki and friends. Along the processional walk, titled Cook’s New Clothes, discover an orchestra of trash instruments (Limbah Berbunyi, composed by Mo’ong), a naval uniform made out of dog furs and a Maori cloak woven from plastics, gathered from the Pacific Ocean. If you would like to attend the procession alone, you are welcome for free to carry objects, walk and play sounds alongside the artists. Please meet promptly at Royal William Yard, 15.00.
