Join us to celebrate the book launch of Natalya Hughes’ first monograph to accompany her IMA exhibition and tour of The Interior.

QCA Director, Professor Elisabeth Findlay will launch the publication to be followed by champagne and afternoon tea in the IMA courtyard.

This publication explores three interrelated strands in the Hughes’ recent practice that that reappraise male modernists (Freud, Kirchner, and de Kooning) and their complex female subjects. Featuring essays by Professor Susan Best (QCA, Griffith), Dr Jacqueline Chlanda (UQ Art Museum), Dr Andrew McNamara (QUT), alongside an interview between Hughes and curator Elspeth Pitt (NGA) this publication is a rich survey of Hughes’s recent work.

The Interior is designed by Evi O Studio, Sydney and published by the Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane.
