Art and Fiction – Heather Rose and Emily Bitto in Conversation

The Stella Prize

Event Date: 29 June 2017
Author / Presenters: Heather Rose, Emily Bitto and Louise Swinn

Join two Stella Prize winners for a very special conversation about art, fiction and the role of creativity in everyday life.

Heather Rose won the 2017 Stella Prize for her novel The Museum of Modern Love, which fictionalises the artist Marina Abramovic’s performance “The Artist is Present” at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Emily Bitto was inspired by the Heide Circle in writing her debut novel The Strays, which follows a group of bohemian artists in 1930s Melbourne and won the 2015 Stella Prize.

At this free event, these two remarkable authors will discuss their writing lives, the art that inspired their fiction, and their experiences as creative women. Hosted by writer and critic Lou Swinn.

This event is free, but bookings are essential. Book here.
