#About the event


Gabriella Coslovich

Gabriella Coslovich

Gabriella Coslovich is a freelance writer, journalist and editor with more than 20 years’ experience, including 15 years at The Age newspaper in Melbourne where she specialised in the arts. She has profiled artists as diverse as John Cale and Barry Humphries, Miriam Margolyes and Gina Lollobrigida, and was the first person to unearth and interview David Walsh, the idiosyncratic professional gambler and owner of the now world-famous Museum of Old and New Art in Hobart, Tasmania.

In 2010 she broke the story of an audacious alleged art fraud involving three huge paintings in the style of the late Australian artist Brett Whiteley. The alleged fraud would eventually be tried in the Supreme Court of Victoria and become the basis for her book Whiteley on Trial.
