Coming soon.... "Double effect" opening 29th July at Griffin Theatre, Sydney

Double effect is a visual art exhibition in the foyer of the STB stable theatre - home of Griffin Theatre, Kings Cross, Sydney. Double effect is a visual art exhibition I have curated in response to a recent Australian play entitled And No More Shall We Part by Tom Holloway. From the Griffin Theatre website...

Double Effect will enliven the foyer of the SBW Theatre with visually sumptuous artworks that will enhance and challenge the performance of And No More Shall We Part.
The Double Effect is a visual arts exhibition that uses Tom Holloway’s play And No More Shall We Part as a departure point to consider the universal theme of mortality.
Located in the foyer of the SBW Stables Theatre, the exhibition consists of conceptually urgent, visually sumptuous art works that will extend, enhance and potentially challenge Griffin’s production of And No More Shall We Part.
The title Double Effect draws attention to the doubling of art forms – both performing and visual – as well as the predicament of mortality.
The group exhibition includes Alumni of Sydney College of the Arts, Master of Fine Arts program with Francesca Heinz, Elise Penith, Leyla Stevens, Ben Terakes, Matt Yeldham and curator Sara Givins.
This exhibition hopes to provoke discussion and exchange between the performing and visual arts communities against the background of the Holloway’s play. 

This is a very exciting project! Here are some pix to whet your appetite...
