Brilliant Dilletantes

Brilliant Dilletantes, Subculture in Germany, in the 1980’s,  is on at RMIT Storey Hall Gallery now until 27 February 2016. I liked what I saw. Tonight, 3rd December at 5.30pm a talk is being given about a new book by Australian writer and Berlin resident, Stuart Braun, discussing his new book  “City of Exiles:Berlin from the Outside In” with Dr Peter Milne.

Peter Burke, organised a talk from a VU former vu student, MJ, who is currently exhibiting in the VU Gallery, 17th Floor Flinders St, Melbourne.

MJ, talked about his work, his love of his craft and his passion for the work he produces . He was successful in getting into Monash University, completed a Fine Art Degree in just two years, and is now a working artist with plans to open his own gallery shortly.

What i took away from the talk were, “just have fun , try lots of different things and keep working”.
