The Monthly October 2023
The Monthly annual Culture issue has a specially commissioned “Yes” cover by Kamilaroi artist @rekorennie, profiled inside by Claire G. Coleman. Ahead of the referendum, we feature Megan Davis on why the ploy to switch support to a symbolic Voice is cynical, and Rachel Perkins on seizing the moment. Plus essays from filmmaker Bob Connolly, returning to PNG for the funeral of a plantation owner, and Quentin Sprague on art and architecture. Also, Alison Croggon on the value of arts labour, Kerryn Goldsworthy on Robyn Davidson’s ranging memoir, new poetry from Nam Le, and Robert Drewe, Miriam Cosic, Marieke Hardy, reviews of ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’, ‘The Details’ and more.
