Artist and Curator talk in association with Sydney Ideas & Macleay Museum

Hosted by: Lian Loke

Get a rare after-hours peak into the insides and outsides of [dead] animals at Sydney’s most original museum and have all your most obscure and perverse taxidermy questions answered by Museum Curator Dr Jude Philp.

Theatre-maker Michelle St Anne will discuss her brave ambitions to create a work around the concept of female hysteria in the 19th century – when hysteria was as common as stuffing and household , every household had a few!

This unique developing collaboration between museum and artist aims to understand how society views its own behaviour and conceals its own oddities at different times. The event will bring together performance ideas, curation and history to be enjoyed with music and wine.

Cost:$10 (light refreshments will be served)
