Exhibiting artist Helen Grace discusses her photographic and video practice with UNSW Galleries Director José Da Silva. Together they will reflect on Grace's new projects that draw from her extensive photographic archive and track a diversity of domestic settings and life at the radical, women-only community, Amazon Acres.
Helen Grace is a new media artist, filmmaker, writer and academic whose work has played an active role in the development of art, cinema, photography, cultural studies and education in Australia and regionally for 30 years. Elements of art and politics intertwine in her work as she draws on the past to reflect on the present. Her work is in the collections of Artbank, National Gallery of Australia, Art Gallery of NSW and Art Gallery of South Australia as well as private collections nationally and internationally.
As public galleries throughout Australia remain temporarily closed, Friendship as a Way of Life will open to the public when restrictions lift and will extend to 21 November 2020. This public program will be delivered online. Please register to receive the link to the event.
