Ann Galbally

Shackled and Set Free: Art, Music and Theatre in Melbourne in the 1890s

A free public lecture in conjunction with a symposium  on G. W. L. Marshall-Hall.

G.W.L. Marshall-Hall, painted by Arthur Streeton

Composer, conductor, critic and littérateur, Marshall-Hall was Melbourne’s leading musician for more than twenty years until his death in 1915. His bohemian lifestyle and outspoken views sparked intense and sometimes vitriolic public debate, and his career was marred by misfortune and errors of judgement.

Dr Ann Galbally, Professorial Fellow in Art History at the University of Melbourne and author of Charles Conder: The Last Bohemian (2002) as well as books on Arthur Streeton, John Peter Russell and Frederick McCubbin, will speak about art and bohemianism in turn-of-the-century Melbourne.

Date: 7.30 pm, Thursday 11 November 2010
Venue: Buzzard Theatre, Trinity College, University of Melbourne
