ART + CLIMATE = CHANGE 2019, an initiative of CLIMARTE, is a festival held across numerous museums, galleries and public spaces in Melbourne and regional Victoria.
The National Portrait Gallery will be closed from 23 April until late-August 2019 while the building is under renovation.
If you ask Dana Lawrie about the title of her latest show Grasp The Nettle, the artist replies, “It’s about approaching something unpleasant, but approaching in a way that’s brave. It’s about doing something as a way of accepting a certain thing, or learning more about it.”
“Painting is something that I am endlessly challenged and fascinated by. And I struggle with it,” Maestri says.
