BURIED NOT DEAD: ESSAYS FROM SYDNEY'S HIDDEN ART WORLD

Artist and novelist Fiona McGregor's new book, Buried Not Dead, is a collection of essays on art, literature and performance, sexuality, activism and the life of the city of Sydney. In a community that celebrated subversion, dissent and uninhibited partygoing, in her writing she observes the shift from that moment to new forms of cultural repression.

CONTEMPORARY ART: PROFILE ON GARY DEIRMENDJIAN

Australian artist Gary Deirmendjian presents this visually rich volume covering around 20 years of his work. The book also contains writings from twenty artists and supporters, offering their thoughts on his work and practice. This, in addition to a contextualising introduction by the artist himself.
