Friday Talk: Intrepid Expatriates Other events...
We invite visitors to join us for a Friday Talk by Amelia Birch titled 'Intrepid Expatriates: The works of Agnes Goodsir and Romaine Brooks'.

In the first few decades of the twentieth century an artistic community of lesbian expatriates flourished in Paris, their numbers small but their creative output far-reaching. In this talk Amelia Birch focuses on two of these artists, Australian-born Agnes Goodsir and American Romaine Brooks, exploring the significance of their lives and work and why their innovation deserves closer attention. After working in theatre for several years in London, Amelia returned to Perth for further study and nicer weather. She is currently completing her Honours year in History of Art at UWA, where her research is addressing women’s self-representation through portraiture in the first half of the twentieth century.
