Drill Hall Gallery director Terence Maloon was invited to give a keynote lecture at the Tarra Warra Museum of Art to celebrate the exhibitions Ian Fairweather: The Drunken Buddha and Tony Tuckson: Paintings and Drawings. He will be repeating this lecture at the ANU on March 22. The lecture examines the post-war context in which these two English migrants reinvented themselves as Australian artists. A particular focus is given to how each artist individually responded to and acted out what the critic Clement Greenberg described in 1948 as the ‘crisis of the easel picture’.

Sunday 22 March 2015 at 3pm at the ANU School of Business and Economics
Tickets: $5 for Friends and students – $10 for others
