May 20th 2004

Established poets such as David Malouf, Jordie Albiston and John Clarke joined nibs with songwriter Mia Dyson, Melbourne poet Lucy Holt, and ten year-old balladeer Annaliese Porter. The exhibition was launched in a sonic landscape, with satirical room notes by Johanna Featherstone and original portraits by Tonee Messiah.

Tonee's series of Poet Portraits were sponsored by the NAVA Visual and Craft Artists' Grant, and managed by NAVA with financial assistance from the Visual Arts/ Craft Board of the Australia Council, the Simpson-Michel Foundation and Pat Corrigan.
