Fiona McGregor - Buried Not Dead
Time & Location
About The Event
We're delighted to help celebrate the launch of Fiona McGregor's latest book Buried Not Dead, a collection of essays on art, literature and performance, sexuality, activism and the life of the city.
It features writers, artists, dancers, tattooists and DJs, some of them famous, like Marina Abramović and Mike Parr, others, like Latai Taumoepeau, Lanny K and Kathleen Mary Fallon, unjustly overlooked. The portraits of these figures and the scenes they inhabit present an intimate and expansive archive of a world rarely recorded in our histories.
This is a FREE event.
RSVP is essential as numbers are limited.
Praise for the book
McGregor has a fine eye for the moment, in a text or performance, when the marvellous happens. Cutting across the boring divides between high art and low dives, Buried Not Dead is alive to what’s alive. McKenzie Wark
Compromise-averse, dangerous, this book is also a precious archive of radical art-making witnessed firsthand. Maria Tumarkin
In a world that bludgeons you into numbness, Buried Not Dead will startle you back to life. McGregor’s book is a shriek of rage and a cry of pleasure, and sometimes it is hard to tell one from the other. Krissy Kneen
About the Author
Fiona McGregor is an award-winning novelist and performance artist with a deep involvement in the worlds she represents. She came of age as an artist during an outpouring of performative queer creativity, in a community that celebrated subversion, dissent and uninhibited partygoing, and in her writing she observes the shift from that moment to new forms of cultural repression. McGregor is a participant in her essays as well as a witness – she sees through an artist’s eyes and records what she perceives with a novelist’s insight.
