Saskia Schut and Scott Mitchell, 'Reading Room'

Opening Event

200 Gertrude Street

200 Gertrude Street, Fitzroy

Free. No bookings required.

The Reading Room is part of current Gertrude exhibition Nothing Beside Remains curated by Tara McDowell. The exhibition activates the entire building at 200 Gertrude with works by thirteen prominent Australian and international artists.

Situated in the front gallery the Reading Room has promoted and played host to a series of events by various collaboraters. Saskia Schut and Scott Mitchell have organised readings by artists, writers, designers, and publishers. The space has continued to subtly respond to the tenor of the texts through alterations to the atmosphere, lighting, time of day, and refreshments. 

All of the readings have been recorded and can be accessed here.

Nothing Beside Remains, and Reading Room events, will continue until the 23 August.
