Talkin’ About Talkin’ About Art
Presented by Runway Magazine in partnership with Verge Gallery
Wednesday December 5, 6pm-8pm
Tickets available via Eventbrite
Runway – Australian Experimental Art Journal and Verge Gallery present a writers round-table facilitated by Tai Mitsuji and special guest Judy Annear. The two writers will first unpack their approach to writing, before all of the attendees engage in a discussion on the art of writing about art. The workshop aims to give attendees not only an insight into the process of writing, but also the opportunity to participate in discussing Verge Gallery’s forthcoming exhibition: ‘Personal Best‘. The floor will be given to the crowd to ask questions, voice opinions, and – if they dare – read out a few lines of writing. Here, we present a conversation rather than a lecture.
