Event description

Description

Half the Perfect World tells the story of the post-war international artist community that formed on the Greek island of Hydra. Most famously, it included renowned singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen and his partner Marianne Ihlen, as well as many other artists and writers including the Australian literary couple, Charmian Clift and George Johnston, who fostered this fabled colony. Half the Perfect World reveals the private lives and relationships of the Hydra expatriates charting the promise of a creative life that drew many of them to the island, and documenting the fracturing of the community as it came under pressure from personal ambitions and wider social changes.

Light refreshments will be served.
