George Gittoes: on being there

Exhibition and Shows

7 Mar 2021 to 18 Apr 2021 Daily Event

George Gittoes: on being there is a stunning and unique journey of an artist willing to create in the face of chaos and potential destruction. Gittoes invites us to examine our own cultural fears, of what it is like to be over there, in places that only appear in our evening news, in the context of global terrorism or violence.

This exhibition gives privileged access to his process through his personal visual diaries, field drawings, photography and film. Through these forms, experience an amazing human journey that holds out the hopeful power of creativity in the face of prejudice and fear.
