Thursday 7 February
7:00pm Secret Lives
Secret Lives looks at the problems of biography in relation to New Zealand artists and writers with a possible LGBTQI identity. Three panellists choose a particular New Zealand artist or writer and talk about life at a time of subterfuge and prejudice: how to be real to yourself and speak your truth – yet survive financially. Esteemed Auckland Art Gallery curator Ron Brownson, maverick modernist and prize-winning author Douglas Lloyd Jenkins are joined by funny and deeply knowledgeable biographer Joanne Drayton, whose latest book, Hudson & Halls: The Food of Love, has been a huge success.
Chaired by an author renowned for not keeping secrets: Peter Wells.
This event is in the Auditorium at the Auckland Art Gallery, Lorne Street.
NOTE: Doors open at the Clock Tower (not the main entrance) at 6.30pm.
