Opening - 5:30 PM - Wednesday, 7th July

Artist Talks - 6:00pm

Running - 8th July 2016 - 23rd July 2016

Full of confidence - and with the best of intentions - Ida Lawrence took to the streets (alone) with the aim of restoring the urban landscape to its former glory... but with very little knowledge of how that should look...

Opening - 5:30 PM - Wednesday, 7th July

Artist Talks - 6:00pm

Running - 8th July 2016 - 23rd July 2016

Shuffling slowly toward the exit is a new site-responsive architectural insertion by Perth-based visual artist Shannon Lyons, that calls into question the pre-existing architectural particularities and specificities of the FELTspace Back Gallery.

Screening from 8:00pm - Wednesday, 7th July

Artist Talks - 6:00pm

Running - 8th July 2016 - 23rd July 2016 after hours, till midnight.

Kristen Coleman explores cinema and the traditionally centred and distanced spectator position. You Can See Me But I Can’t See You challenges and reverses the idea of cinematic voyeurism, an act that is inherent to the medium itself.
