William Robinson: A new perspective - Nick Earls
Texta is no ordinary book club; it's for people who love art. We use fiction (mostly) to unpack the subjects, themes and emotions of art. Conversation is never colourless, and is facilitated by our brains trust from QUT Creative Industries Faculty.
This unique non-fiction novella provides a new perspective on both author Nick Earls and renowned artist William Robinson. From cringing over his first solo exhibition in the 1960s, to juggling family life, teaching and goat farming alongside his art practice, Robinson's life and career trajectory delightfully unfold through Earl's relatable humour and uncanny observation.
The evening commences with a brief tour of the current exhibition, followed by a glass of wine and generous amounts of conversation about the title of choice.
