thisplace. exhibition opening this Saturday!

Well, the day is almost here!!  I'm so excited to see the show finally come together!  

thisplace. has been an ambitious project for me as I've created so many elements for the show; a photographic series, two performance films, an interactive installation, an Art Hunt, and activities for the children.  The exhibition breaks the barriers of the traditional white cube gallery and embraces the chaos of being a parent.   

I've definitely experienced first hand how difficult it can be to attend exhibitions and experience art with young children so it was imperative to create interactive art in a family friendly space.  And, hopefully, we can open an honest and non-judgmental conversation about what it’s really like to be a mother.  To encourage the conversation to continue after attending the exhibition, the audience is welcome to photograph how they’ve experienced the show and share on social media using the tags #thisplace #townhallgallery #ilonanelson

opens Saturday 10th January 2-4pm
Town Hall Gallery
