Portrait of an Artist 2017 series

James C. Sourris AM Collection - Portrait of an Artist

This event is now in the past.

The James C Sourris AM Collection of contemporary Australian artist interviews forms part of the Australian Library of Art collection at State Library of Queensland.

Discover the James C Sourris AM Collection throughout 2017 at a series of talks with artists who have contributed their stories to the collection, and gain a unique insight into their lives and works.

First, you'll watch a screening of their artist interviews, conducted in their homes, before moving on to a discussion with the artist with plenty of time for your questions.

The Portrait of an Artist series is made possible thanks to the generosity of James C Sourris AM through the Queensland Library Foundation.
