Performance Lecture Series

WRITING AND CONCEPTS: Angus Mcgrath presents ‘Dogboy’

WRITING & CONCEPTS is a lecture and performance series exploring the insights practitioners have into their own creative and cultural practices. It provides an opportunity to explore these insights in a public forum in a mode consistent with their practice.

“This is a gossip-y lecture about a tumultuous affair I had with a famous contemporary artist. Set into motion by a recent, expensive purchase the National Gallery of Australia made of his work, I try to detail what the fling meant about him, me and the art world, even if the whole thing is unbelievable.”

Attend the public presentation and Q&A this Saturday November 14 at 3pm, tickets and further details, here.
