Join curators Brian Allison and Astrid Britt Krautschneider for a floor talk discussing the latest temporary exhibition at the Grainger Museum, An Artist's Utopia: Mortimer Menpes in Japan.

The presentation will highlight this little-known Australian artist's work, his enduring fascination with Japan, and his remarkable book publishing endeavours – including his role in the introduction of a new printing technique, the Hentschel Colourtype process.
