The making of Poetic threads

Sep. 17, 2018

This mini documentary captures a unique project that united contemporary poetry and medieval art at the Art Gallery of NSW in May-June 2018. Poetic threads featured celebrated performers Mirrah, Candy Royalle and Scotty Wings performing newly-commissioned poetic pieces live in the exhibition The Lady and the Unicorn. Poetic threads was presented by the Art Gallery of NSW, Red Room Poetry and Sydney Writers’ Festival and supported by Atelier, the next generation of benefactors at the Art Gallery of NSW.
