Emu Island – Modernism in Place – Author and Exhibition Curator talks.

The current exhibition suite celebrates modernism through the lens of abstract artists Margo and Gerald Lewers and their home at Emu Plains. Connect with the history of modernism and gain some insights into what made the Gallery a unique place of creativity beginning 75 years ago. Continuing a long established history of enquiry and debate, a number of writers, curators and artists were commissioned to investigate the under-researched area of post WWII Sydney modernism in relation to the Lewers and their contemporaries. Come join us as curator and writer Rhonda Davis, artist and writer Ian Milliss and exhibition curator and writer Shirley Daborn share what their research reveals and how it adds to the fabulous story of Emu Island – Modernism in Place.
