This publication follows Natalya Hughes’s IMA commissioned solo The Interior 29 July–1 October 2022 which will tour nationally from 2023. The monograph explores three interrelated strands in the artist’s recent practice that reappraise male modernists (Freud, Kirchner, and de Kooning) and their complex relationships to their female subjects. Featuring essays by Professor Susan Best (QCA, Griffith), Dr Jacqueline Chlanda (UQ Art Museum), Professor Andrew McNamara (QUT), alongside an interview between Hughes and curator Elspeth Pitt (NGA) this publication is a rich survey of Hughes’s recent work.
