Multidisciplinary artist James Tylor’s career survey exhibition, James Tylor: Turrangka…in the shadowsis now open to the public after a successful opening at UNSW Galleries in Sydney last night.

Curated by the accomplished Leigh Robb, Senior Curator Art Gallery of South Australia, the touring exhibition brings together ten years of practice and key examples of Tylor’s acclaimed daguerreotype and digital photographs in installations that incorporate the artist’s handmade objects and wall treatments. Together the works speak to the Australian environment, culture, and social history through experimental photographic processes and the remaking of Kaurna cultural design.

An artist talk will take place today between 3 — 4pm at UNSW Galleries, seeing James Tylor in conversation with curator Leigh Robb to discuss Tylor’s profound and prolific practice.
