March: Richard James Allen

In response to the exhibition, Brett Whiteley: wildlife and other emergencies, in which we experience some of the most brutal, primal work, Richard James Allen explores the internal rhythms of the wildest animal of all: the human being.

Allen is a Sydney-based poet. His latest book is The short story of you and I. He has recently begun #RichardReads, an online compendium that celebrates the art of poetry by reading aloud great poems from a diverse range of authors across time, location and genre.
