Why do the works of some artists become status symbols, coveted by collectors and preyed upon by would-be forgers? How is an artist’s reputation formed? Author and arts journalist Gabriella Coslovich considers the enduring allure of Brett Whiteley.

Includes an opportunity to view Baldessin/Whiteley: Parallel Visions from 5.30pm.


Gabriella Coslovich is a Melbourne arts journalist and author of the award-winning true crime book Whiteley on Trial, an extraordinary tale of an alleged art fraud.
