Elizabeth Gertsakis in conversation with Gareth Syvret
30 November 2019
2pm Saturday 30 November
Free event RSVP here
Join Elizabeth Gertsakis and MGA Associate Curator Gareth Syvret as they discuss Gertsakis's 1987 series Innocent reading for origin, which combines personal archival photographs with Gertsakis's writing. Moving beyond captions, these descriptions invite the viewer to interrogate what they are seeing and to experience the gaps of knowledge that can exist in migrant stories, memory and family histories.
This will be the first time that images from Innocent reading for origin have been shown at MGA since they were acquired in 1994. The exhibition Dressing up: clothing and camera, is Syvret's inaugural exhibition for MGA which draws on the MGA Collection and connects images that combine dress, costume and photography.
