What’s the link between quiet 1890s North Adelaide and the radical world of 1920s European art and literature? Meet Stella Bowen.

One of Australia’s great war artists, Bowen was a remarkable South Australian who abandoned the home she dismissed as a “queer little backwater of intellectual timidity” at the age of 20.

Using Bowen’s own words and oft-incisive observations, join us for an amusingly subversive view of turn-of-the-century North Adelaide.
