Pop-up cinema—Smart's Labyrinth: Every picture a defeat

Wednesday 1 July to Friday 31 July 2020

Jeffrey Smart as he reflected on his artistic practice and the inspiration for his paintings in Smart's Labyrinth: Every picture a defeat.

Artist Jeffrey Smart observes that he doesn’t like viewing his finished work as 'every picture is a defeat’. At work in his studio, the renowned contemporary artist reflects on being inspired—rather than daunted—by the work and achievements of the 'old masters’.
