Anthony Byrt - Travels Through Contemporary Art

Sunday 15th October 2017

Award-winning writer, judge and Ockham Non-Fiction book finalist Anthony Byrt has made his career in that most challenging of journalistic disciplines: art criticism.

With regular columns and features in Metro as well as leading art journals, he’s developed the genre and matured art writing and thinking in New Zealand, bringing it to a wider audience both here and internationally.

Hear him discuss his writing and the state of our contemporary art scene with photographer and Bishop Suter Trust chair Craig Potton.

HEAR MORE FOR LESS with two special offers: 5 for $50 or 10 for $90 (plus TicketDirect service fee). Excludes the Thinking Brunches. Choose the five or ten talks you wish to attend at a discounted price. Offers can be used for a group booking. These special offers are only available from Theatre Royal Nelson.

Come early to order coffee - when the talking begins the machine is turned off!

Continue the conversation at 10am on both Tuesdays after the weekend sessions, with discussion groups at Nelson’s Elma Turner Library.
