On Wednesday 5 October American authors Catherine Taylor and Nicholas Muellner will present their latest image-text works in a slideshow reading. The reading will be followed by a Q&A.
In their books, Image Text Music and Lacuna Park, Taylor and Muellner re-imagine the essay as a journey through the contemporary visual and literary landscape, drawing piercing and pleasurable insights from intimate personal, historical, erotic and emotional experience.
