|7 February 2011 | The first major retrospective of the work of photographer Polixeni Papapetrou is currently on view at the Australian Centre for Photography in Sydney. |
The exhibition, which spans the past 12 years, focuses on work created with her children Olympia and Salomon and their friends. The images use play and dress-ups to explore the complex and often contradictory attitudes of the adult world towards children.
|Tales from Elsewhere has been curated by ACP director Alasdair Foster and is accompanied by a digital archive so that viewers can explore Papapetrou’s full oeuvre. |
The retrospective is on view until 12 March 2011.
