Art and poetry combine in QUT Literary Salon's intimate workshop.

Fancy yourself as a poet, but unsure where to start? Cue the ekphrastic poem! Art and poetry combine in QUT Literary Salon's intimate workshop, where you will write and read a poem exploring an artwork of your choice featured in the exhibition Anne Wallace: Strange Ways. Be guided through the process of interpretation, analysis, and presentation of your poetry piece as you draw on the tense and mysterious narratives of Wallace's works.

Suitable for ages from 16 years +. This program is part of QUT O-week and open to both students and anyone interested in poetry.

Anne Wallace: Strange Ways

When:
9 November 2019 - 23 February 2020

Strange ways is the first major survey exhibition of Anne Wallace, and includes works from the early 1990s through to the current day. Born and raised in Brisbane in the 1970s, her highly accomplished figurative paintings are as much about the textual as the pictorial.
