Meet the Artist
Members Book Club with Patrick Pound

Sat 24 Jun, 11am
NGV Australia, Federation Square
Meet: Theatre
Ground Level

A story about a young couple who want to enjoy life, but only know how to do so through the possession of ‘things’, this tale of a world mediated by an obsession with ownership corresponds to Patrick Pound: The Great Exhibition, on display now at NGV Australia as part of the NGV Festival of Photography.

Artist Patrick Pound is an avid collector and cites Perec’s novel, Things: A Story of the Sixties, as a strong literary influence within his practice. In this special Members Book Club event, join NGV Curator of Photography, Maggie Finch and the artist Patrick Pound, for an exclusive discussion and Q&A.
