Points of View: Wheeler Centre talk at the National Gallery of Victoria

Points of View is a partnership between The Wheeler Centre for Books, Writing and Ideas, and the National Gallery of Victoria. Speakers are invited to respond to an iconic work of Australian art. On 2 July 2014, I responded to Tom Roberts’ Shearing the Rams, alongside:

  • Michael Varcoe-Cocks: Head of Conservation, NGV
  • Dave Oliver: Secretary, ACTU
  • Hugh Bradlow: Chief Technology Officer, Telstra
  • Gillian Cosgriff: singer, songwriter, pianist and performer

Introduced by Simon Abrahams, Head of Programming, Wheeler Centre.

My 10min talk gave a political story and a personal story spanning feminism, colonialism and poo.
