Celebrated writer, poet and art curator, Gregory O’Brien will lead a public floor talk of the major survey exhibition Melvin Day – a modernist perspective in Pātaka’s Maude & Miller Gallery.

Greg curated the second major survey of Day’s extensive practice, Melvin Day–Continuum, for City Gallery Wellington in 2005 and was the primary writer and co-editor of the lavishly illustrated monograph, Melvin Day–Artist, published by Victoria University Press and Waikato Museum te Whare Taonga Waikato in 2019.

A regular commentator on the arts on National Radio and in every other form of public and social media, Greg is a great raconteur and high energy, entertaining speaker.

His floor talk will be a lot of fun and is not to be missed!
