The Image Looks Back – Curator Tour

The Image Looks Back was due to open a few days after government COVID-19 restrictions came into place. The RMIT Gallery doors closed before installation was completed, so we have been exploring other ways of sharing the works and curatorial ideas with you. We are pleased to present a virtual curator’s talk, with Shane Hulbert discussing the works in the exhibition.

In an era of post truth, fake news, and manipulated images, The Image Looks Back explores the reconfiguration of photography, asking how notions of visual truth and human experience are shaped by new technologies of vision.

Curated by Alison Bennett, Shane Hulbert, Rebecca Najdowski and Daniel Palmer

Artists Jacqueline Felstead, Joan Fontcuberta, Forensic Architecture, Generative Photography (Adam Brown, Tabea Iseli, Alan Warburton), Mike Gray, Joe Hamilton, Thomas Hirschhorn, Rhonda Holberton, Fei Jun, Amalia Lindo, Rosa Menkman, Tyler Payne,, Joachim Schmid and Winnie Soon
