In collaboration with Red Room Poetry
Join a special before-hours tour of Shadow catchers with curator Isobel Parker Philip and six poets who have responded creatively to this exhibition of photographs and moving image from the Gallery’s collection.
Adopting the mirror as a metaphoric device and the echo as a visual conceit, Shadow catchers offers a playful portrait of photographic doubling. Explore the exhibition, hear the poems performed live and learn about the artwork.
Co-produced by the Art Gallery of NSW and Red Room Poetry.
