Anya Gallacio

Anya Gallaccio creates site-specific installations, often using organic materials as her medium.

Pushing The Lens: Conceptual Practices in Photography

An ongoing series of lectures by artists who use photography to investigate subjects ranging from identity to history; ethnography and cataloguing; collecting, consuming and desire. They are disparate in their approaches but each photographer plays with the boundaries of the medium to different ends. Each artist will share their experience for the benefit of the School of Arts students but their practices will demonstrate how contemporary photography and the humanities or the sciences can collide.
