Creative conversations: Linda Tegg

Wednesday 15 October 2014, 6:00pm - 7:00pm
The Courtyard
Main entry, Swanston St

Across Australia, efforts to restore and conserve our native grasslands have been gaining momentum. This spring, artist and 2012 Georges Mora Foundation Fellowship recipient Linda Tegg is drawing attention to our urban ecology with her installation Grasslands on the Library’s forecourt.

Join the artist and a panel including horticulturalists and historians as they explore the history, ecology and representation of native grasslands, from pre-settlement to today.

This talk is part of Creative conversations, an intimate, behind-the-scenes lecture series that features artists and writers from the Library’s Fellowship Program.
