This spring, Linda Tegg's Grasslands installation will transform the imposing stone forecourt of the State Library of Victoria into an imagined primordial wilderness.

Join artist and 2012 Georges Mora Foundation Fellowship recipient Linda Tegg in conversation with Shelley Jamieson, the Library's Preservation and Conservation Manager, as they discuss the encounter between the Grasslands installation and the ecology of the Library.

The artist tour will commence at Grasslands on the Library forecourt, then move behind the scenes to Quarantine via the Cowen Gallery.

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.
