Contemporary Voices: Jeff Thomas and Shelley Niro
July 23, 2011 - September 4, 2011
Contemporary Voices is comprised of 22 works by contemporary six nation’s artists Shelley Niro and Jeff Thomas. The exhibition creates a dialogue between the two artists who use photography to explore narratives of the past and present and how they intersect. Together the work sheds light on issues of identity and representation, stereotypes and icons and agency and control.
