Experience poetry and painting in harmony as you hear some of the verse that inspired John Olsen while viewing his lyrical paintings. Antiquarian bookseller Nicholas Pounder, a dear friend and biographer of John Olsen, discusses his and John’s shared appreciation of poetry and literature, and the poetic references and metaphors throughout John’s work. And artist Raquel Ormella presents City without crows, a performance lecture about the trade of native birds in the caged pet market of Yogyakarta, Indonesia.
