Enjoy the first Friday of each month with Friends. Begin at 10.30am with coffee, tea and scones before an illustrated lecture at 11.00am.

Lecturer at The University of Melbourne, Professor Jeanette Hoorn, will present an illustrated lecture discussing her recent publication Moroccan Idyll which examines the paintings of Hilda Rix Nicholas, who experimented with post-impressionist style during a trip to Morocco in 1912. During two painting expeditions to Tangiers, Rix Nicholas feminized Orientalism, in works which may be described as counter-Orientalist. 

Jeanette Hoorn is Professor of Visual Cultures and Director of Gender Studies in the School of Culture and Communication at the University of Melbourne
