In Conversation with Felicity St John Moore and Richard Moore at MAC

Published on 07 July 2016

As a part of their Diamond Jubilee celebrations, Mildura Arts Centre are presenting their second In Conversation event this Sunday 10 July.

Arts and Culture Portfolio Councillor Jill Joslyn invited the community to come along on Sunday afternoon and listen to curator and art historian Felicity St John Moore and her son, film maker Richard Moore, talk about a new film called The Wolf in Australian Art, which is based on the life and art of Danila Vassilieff (1897 – 1958).

Felicity St John Moore is well known to the region and has previously exhibited here.

“In November 2013, Felicity St John Moore curated the highly successful Vassilieff: Journey to Mildura which attracted over 9000 people, making it one of the most popular exhibitions ever held at Mildura Arts Centre,” Cr Joslyn said.

Councillor Joslyn said the film, The Wolf in Australian Art, which was directed by Richard Moore and based on the book Vassilieff: Journey to Mildura by Felicity Moore, will be premiered for the first time in Mildura at the event.

The film tells the story of Vassilieff’s journey as he travelled from St Petersburg to Melbourne, Warrandyte and Mildura.

People wishing to attend this free In Conversation event are encouraged to arrive at 1.30pm and to be seated by 2pm. Refreshments will be available for purchase from the café.  

The event should last for seventy five minutes and is just one of many scheduled over a busy program of events this weekend at Mildura Arts Centre. Please check their website http://www.milduraartscentre.com.au/ for further details.
