This is an online event

Morganna Magee, Georgia Metaxas and Vanessa Winship’s works are in dialogue as part of CCP’s winter exhibition ‘Walking Through the Darkness’ (21 July – 10 September 2023). Their recent projects speak to ideas of journeying and memory, and the symbolic power of the landscape.

In this informal ‘in conversation’, Magee, Metaxas and Winship, will discuss and reflect on the commonalities between their practices.

This event is kindly supported by RMIT and will be jointly convened by Alison Bennet (Associate Dean, Photography, RMIT) and Catlin Langford (CCP Curator).

The event will be held online at the following times:

7pm, Melbourne
