7 September @ Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery ·
Presented by Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery ·

Join Cosmopolitan curator Dr Sally Quin for this discussion exploring the exhibition and a look into some of the major themes in Australian art in the 1930s, a time of significant political, economic and social change. The eclectic range of works, featuring pieces in surrealist, abstract and realist styles, reflect both the optimism and tumult of the decade.

Dr Sally Quin is Curator of the University of Western Australia Art Collection at LWAG. Her work focuses on modern and contemporary Australian art, and her publications include ‘Bauhaus on the Swan: Elise Blumann, an émigré artist in Western Australia, 1938-1948’  (UWAP, 2015) and the  monograph ‘Stewart Scambler: Works 1982-2018’ (LWAG, 2018).

The Curator’s Talk and Tour takes place between 2 and 3 pm on Saturday 7 September.
