PHOTO-RETRO by George Schwarz

A retrospective of one of Australia’s most interesting and diverse artists.

George Schwarz’s oeuvre goes beyond the genre of autobiography to touch on universal themes of human experience- sex, death and the unconscious. Schwarz’s PHOTO-RETRO exhibition challenges prevailing canons and histories of Australian photography. Shown as a collection spanning over four decades, Schwarz’s images operate as vehicles across the structures of time and memory. They resonate with sensuality, pathos and humour.

Exhibition Dates: 20 June – 2 July, 10am-6pm.
Opening Night: 22 June, 6pm-8pm.

3/138 Darlinghurst Road, Darlinghurst, NSW, 2010
