Opening: James Tylor ' the shadows' and Lily Cummins

Opening Night

Friday 15 March 2024

6:00PM - 8:30PM

It's time for another opening at the Gallery, and we are excited to launch two incredible exhibitions.

Multi-disciplinary artist James Tylor combines historical and contemporary photographic processes to explore his Nunga (Kaurna Miyurna), Māori (Te Arawa) and European (English, Scottish, Irish, Dutch and Norwegian) ancestry.

James Tylor Turrangka…in the shadows is a UNSW Galleries exhibition curated by Leigh Robb that surveys a decade of Tylor’s practice and, for the first time, brings together the most comprehensive selection of his unique daguerreotypes, expansive digital photographic series, and hand-made Kaurna cultural objects. The exhibition title is drawn from a Kaurna word, highlighting a significant ongoing aspect of Tylor’s practice: the learning and sharing of his Indigenous language. As well as shadow, turra also translates to reflection, image, and mirror.

In Gallery 2, artist Lily Cummins presents The curtain breathes and the room glows lilac. Featuring new works, this solo exhibition explores the disintegration of memory and the inevitable passage of time. Mining her personal experience of remembrance, absence, and loss, Cummins presents an immersive and thoughtful series of works.

We're brimming with excitement to open these exhibitions, so book in and join us for the Friday fun.

This event is free of charge and open to all.
