Maura Reilly (the new Professor of Art Theory at Queensland College of Art, Griffith University) will talk to Luke Roberts about his current show AlphaStation/Alphaville, followed by a screening of Jack Smith’s notorious 1963 gender-bending film Flaming Creatures. ‘This movie will be called pornographic, degenerate, homosexual, trite, disgusting, etc—it is all that and it is so much more’, wrote Jonas Mekas. 16mm print courtesy National Film and Sound Archive, Canberra.
