Leila Jeffreys and Tim Low ‘in conversation’
Join the artist in conversation with Tim Low, author of Where Song Began: Australia’s birds and how they changed the world.
This event is part of Birdland, an exhibition by acclaimed Australian contemporary artist Leila Jeffreys, uniquely curated for MAG&M. The artist is best known for visceral and mysterious images of birds that explore and subvert the traditions of portraiture. Her avian subjects are photographed at human scale with a startling attention to colour, line, form and composition. For Jeffreys, birds are both medium and message. Her practice opens windows into critical questions about the shared anthropomorphism that connects humans with animals, the sense of wildness that tugs at the fringes of everyday existence and the fleeting and precious connections that bind you to the natural world.
Leila will be with them in person and Tim will be joining them virtually via Zoom from Queensland.
Booking essential and details will be sent to booked participants before the event.
