Vaudeville was the revolutionary first anthology of Australian poet Ronald McCuaig. Printers refused to print the work for fear of imprisonment so he printed a limited edition himself. The rare book reveals the sex, violence, despair, ennui, and tenderness of 1930s Sydney characters and was the start of a long and colourful literary career.
Documentary filmmaker Nicole McCuaig explores the work of her grandfather the poet, journalist, critic and children’s author for this unique exhibition. Featuring videopoetry, documentary, rare anthologies, and archival remnants, the collection showcases his impressive life in letters.
Exhibition Dates: 23 January – 8 February
