Monograph x Verge // April 22

Monograph x Verge
Saturday April 22, 10:30am – 4pm
Verge Gallery


Join Monograph, a Melbourne-based reading circle, for a day of art-loving bookish goodness.

**Places for the Monograph session (12:30-2:30) are strictly limited! RSVP to to secure your spot!**

In a range of sessions we encourage artists, students, writers, curators and general art lovers come together to discuss texts relevant to their creative practice. Through an informal format, ideas are shared, networks are made and a greater appreciation of art and books is cultivated.

For Monograph x Verge, we’ve got a panel discussion discussing favourite books, a standard Monograph session sharing books and ideas, and a book swap.
