Texta is no ordinary book club; it’s for people who love art. To coincide with the exhibition ‘STEEL: art design architecture’, our first book for the year is ‘The Museum of Modern Love’ by Heather Rose. The evening commences with a brief tour of the exhibition, followed by a glass of wine and generous amounts of conversation.
A mesmerising literary novel about a lost man in search of connection – a meditation on love, art and commitment, set against the backdrop of a significant art event in modern history, Marina Abramović’s ‘The Artist is Present’.
‘The Museum of Modern Love’ was the winner of the 2017 Stella Prize and the Christina Stead Award for Fiction in the New South Wales Premier’s Prizes.
