Event Description

Full Description:
Please join Dr Emily Bitto and Dr Chris McAuliffe as they discuss the ideas that inform their recent work. Emilyís debut novel 'The Strays' (2014) is inspired by the artists and intellectuals who, from the 1930s, gathered around Heide, the Melbourne home of art patrons John and Sunday Reed. Chrisís research for the exhibition We who love: The Nolan slates at UQ Art Museum has centred on the artistic development of renowned Australian painter Sidney Nolan, in the context of his deepening personal and creative relationship with the Reeds.

Dr Emily Bitto is a graduate of UQ and has a Masters in Literary Studies and a PhD in Creative Writing from the University of Melbourne. Emilyís writing has appeared in 'Meanjin', 'Island' magazine and the 'Sydney Morning Herald'. 'The Strays' won the 2015 Stella Prize.

Moderated by poet Dr Bronwyn Lea, Associate Professor, School of Communication and Arts, The University of Queensland.

Dr Chris McAuliffe is Professor of Art (Practice-led research) School of Art, ANU and curator of 'We who love: The Nolan slates'. From 2000 to 2013, Chris was Director of the Ian Potter Museum of Art, the University of Melbourne.

Associate Professor Bronwyn Lea is a Senior Lecturer at UQ, where she has research interests in poetics, narratology, creative writing, and gender studies. Bronwynís poetry collections include 'The deep north' (2013) and 'The other way out' (2008).
