These inspiring talks are fundraising events for Geelong Gallery and begin at 10:15am with coffee, tea and scones in the Gallery, before an illustrated lecture at 11.00am at the High Ground, Wurdi Youang, Geelong Library and Heritage Centre.

But has Nolan’s modernist practice left a similar mark on other Australian or even international artists? Join art historian and writer Andrew Gaynor for an illustrated lecture on this intriguing possibility.
