Come and hear Ann Packer talk about her planned biography of NZ textile artist Malcolm Harrison in this Friends of the Turnbull Library event.

Malcolm Harrison (1941-2007) was a textile artist of extraordinary creative talent, whose work has been collected by most New Zealand galleries and cultural institutions.

It is his artworks that soar above Parliament’s Galleria, and the documentation of the often controversial process behind this installation is held by the Alexander Turnbull Library.

Ann Packer, a freelance writer, editor and oral historian, is planning to write a biography of Malcolm Harrison. She is author of the bestselling Random House book, Crafty Girls’ Road Trip (reprinted twice, new edition in 2012), as well as the prize-winning book Stitch: New Zealand Textile Artists (2006).
