Got the session time and venue wrong when I went to see the Townes Van Zandt doco. Very embarassing, seeing I took along a posse.
Instead, our posse went to the National Gallery of Victoria to check out the free exhibition, Albrecht Dürer: Master of the Renaissance.
Dürer lived from 1471-1528 and is best known for his wood-cutting genius.
After seeing this exhibition, I'll remember him more as an arts version of Nick Drake with a potty mouth. While many of these prints show lonely figures contemplating their place in an awkward cosmos, most (if you look closely) contain a peurile dick joke somewhere or rather.
NGV's Albert Durer Exhibition Site which contains many more from the gallery's collection which wouldn't fit in the room.
