Hannah Gadsby is an award-winning Australian comedian who thinks quickly and moves slowly. She is sardonic, laconic and, after numerous bone crunching accidents, bionic. Her droll delivery, delightful wordplay and heart-breakingly funny, self-deprecating observations have delighted audiences all over the world.

Hannah has performed to sold out houses at comedy festivals across Australia, accepted an invitation to perform at the exclusive Kilkenny Comedy Festival, the prestigious Montreal Just for Laughs comedy festival and appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe and New Zealand Comedy Festivals. In 2013, Hannah’s solo show Happiness is a Bedside Table was nominated for Best Show in the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

Determined to make use of her Art History degree for the purposes of debt recovery, Hannah has written and presented three art documentaries for ABC TV, and takes every opportunity to present her incredibly popular comedic art lectures at festivals around the world.

In celebration of Portrait Month at the Gallery, Hannah takes a close look at a selection of works from the State Art Collection and gives us her take on what makes an artwork an artwork.

Time: Doors open 6:30pm, main performance 8pm.

Exhibition: "Unknown Land" and Black Swan Prize for Portraiture
