Light Sensitive


Light Sensitive

26 Apr 2023 – 26 Jul 2023

‘Light Sensitive’ is a major exhibition at Town Hall Gallery showcasing the narrative potential of light and its innovative application in art.

Drawing on the symbolic, conceptual, and functional qualities of the medium, the featured artists have a sensitivity to light in various forms, from natural to neon. In this exhibition artists share their personal stories, heritage, or responses to place through a sophisticated blending of artistry and science.

‘Light Sensitive’ offers an immersive and contemplative experience celebrating the medium of light in its many incarnations, including photography, installation, and projection.

Featuring: Leslie Eastman, Kinly Grey, Taree Mackenzie, Jazz Money, Sanja Pahoki and Meagan Streader.
