Eavesdropping on Artists
A series of interactive talks, presented by the Wheeler Centre, in which prominent artists discuss shows presented as part of Melbourne Festival.
The catch? The artists must talk about artworks from outside their own practice.
Come and find out what artists really think about each other’s work, in this fascinating, cross-disciplinary discussion on the practice and presentation of art.
