About this Event

Join acclaimed Australian contemporary artist Leila Jeffreys ‘in conversation’ with MAG&M curator Ross Heathcote as they discuss her new exhibition, uniquely curated for MAG&M. Leila is best known for visceral and mysterious images of birds that explore and subvert the traditions of portraiture. Her avian subjects are photographed at human scale with a startling attention to colour, line, form and composition. For Leila, birds are both medium and message. Her practice opens windows into critical questions about the shared anthropomorphism that connects humans with animals, the sense of wildness that tugs at the fringes of everyday existence and the fleeting and precious connections that bind us to the natural world.

Increasingly, Leila work as an artist is inextricable from her concerns as an environmentalist.

Working in the tradition of artist-activists, her arresting images are the result of years’ long periods of research, exploration and investigation. The artist collaborates with conservationists, ornithologists and sanctuaries around the world to find her subjects before forging an intimate relationship with the birds that she photographs and films in her studio. This evening will open your eyes and minds to a unique creative process by this very special artist.

Refreshments will be served. Please contact us for any special dietary requirements.

Cost: $20 Members or $30 Non-Members.
