MGA openings Saturday 24 July 3pm

Join us on Saturday at 3pm for openings of Living deadly: haunted surfaces in contemporary art and Concettina Inserra and Lyndal Walker's Taking pictures some time later.

Living deadly will be opening by Djon Mundine OAM, Indigenous Curator of Contemporary Art at Campbelltown Arts Centre. Djon is a member of the Bundjalung people of northern NSW and has had a career as an activist, curator and writer.

This major exhibition examines the way history and the dead haunt contemporary art. Curated by MGA Curator Stephen Zagala, Living deadly includes 49 works by nine artists, including photography, painting, drawing and sculpture.
