Sunday 29 April 11.00 am

Join the UQ Art Museum and School of Music as we present the Tinalley in the Robert Smithson: Time Crystals exhibition. 

Tinalley String Quartet will play a program of Beethoven and Ravel. Beethoven’s Opus 95 quartet is the last of the quartets of his ‘middle’ period and is a turbulent affair that partly reflects his inner turmoil at the impending loss of his hearing. It is juxtaposed with one of the great quartets of the 20th century. Ravel received much criticism from critics and fellow composers following the premiere of his only quartet but the unique colours and textures that he created in this work have made it a firm international favourite. This concert coincides with the release of Tinalley’s debut recording on the Decca label, featuring the quartets of Debussy and Ravel.

Robert Smithson: Time Crystals is the first exhibition in Australia dedicated to the work of American artist Robert Smithson (1938–1973). Best known for his radical land art of the 1960s and early 1970s, Smithson is now widely recognised as one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century. Inspired by ideas of crystalline geometry and non-biological time, he redefined abstraction and challenged art history, declaring that ‘Nature gives way to the incalculable cycles of nonduration’.
