Sally Gray - Friends, Fashion and Fabulousness, The Making of Australian Style

Free

Australia in the 1970s was "the most creative place in the world" according to celebrity shoe designer Manolo Blahnik. Join us for this special event as researcher and academic Dr Sally Gray joins Geelong Gallery Director Jason Smith to discuss her book 'Friends, Fashion and Fabulousness: The Making of an Australian Style'. Linking fashion, art, sexual politics and diverse urban subcultures, four friends in particular form her central narrative: fashion designers Jenny Kee and Linda Jackson, and artists Peter Tully and David McDiarmid. Their creative trajectories and interactions, their collaborations, passion and politics, continue to resonate today.
