Barbara McGrady: Always will be
Friday 15 February - Sunday 17 March.
Always Will Be is an exhibition of documentary photographs by Barbara McGrady that speaks to all Australians from an entirely indigenous perspective. These works are historical documents of political, social and community events that hold great value within indigenous history.

David Griggs: Between Nature and Sin
Friday 22 March - Sunday 21 April 2019
David Griggs explores the darker undercurrents of human existence. His work, predominately portraiture, focuses on the human condition; drawing on political imagery, underground media, local histories and personal experience. Famous for his bold anarchistic approach, Griggs takes the everyday and flips it to expose the cracks, exhuming the raw undercurrent of a society. He documents intimate chance moments and the deliberate actions of his friends, and strangers, within an unidentifiable Manila.
