Jennifer Higgie is an Australian writer who lives in London. Her new book  The Other Side: A Journey into Women, Art and the Spirit World is published in the UK by Weidenfeld & Nicolson and Pegasus Books in the USA. The Mirror and the Palette: Revolution, Rebellion and Resilience: 500 Years of Women’s Self-Portraits was published in 2021. Jennifer is the inaugural editor of the National Gallery of Australia’s new publication The Annual and the host of the NGA’s new podcast Artists’s Artists. In July 2023, the exhibition she curated, ‘Thin Skin’ – a survey of contemporary and historical painting – opened at the Monash University Museum of Art in Melbourne.
About the Talk: “It’s not so long ago that a woman’s expressed interest in other realms would have ruined her reputation, or even killed her. And yet spiritualism, in various incarnations, has influenced numerous men without repercussion. The fact that so many radical female artists of their generation—and earlier—also drank deeply from the same spiritual well has been sorely neglected for too long.” – Simon and Shuster
