Members Artist Workshop: Prudence Flint

Past program
Fri 23 Feb, 6pm–7.30pm

NGV International

Members Lounge (enter via main Waterwall entrance)
Ground Level

Booked out

Melbourne artist Prudence Flint’s paintings of women escape easy interpretation. Seemingly lost in thought, the figures are surrounded by everyday objects that serve as metaphors for the inner world.

For NGV Triennial, Flint shares her new body of work, titled Hunting and Fishing, which reflects the artist’s ongoing interest in the traditions of figurative painting and the representation of women throughout art history.

In an exclusive opportunity offered just to NGV Members and their guests, Flint leads an intimate after-hours nude life drawing workshop in the gallery with one of her models, Michaela Meadow.

The evening will begin with wine and cheese in the Members Lounge and a short introduction to this new body of work by the artist before the workshop commences.
