Miss Haberdash goes to the movies

I'm thrilled  ACMI will be showing, In the Realms of the Unreal- The Mystery of Henry Darger

It's a fascinating story, about the life and work of self taught artist, writer, and collector, Henry Darger.

I was immediately drawn to the vibrant watercolours, but underneath the decorative it's a mystery. Fragments of collage, with images taken from children's books and comics, go on dark fantastical journeys. 

You can buy tickets online from ACMI.
