ISEA 2013 – 10 June – Dominic

Yesterday I caught lectures at the Museum of Modern Art, caught the Jess Wall show and then took in the Rocks Pop-Up exhibitions

Nostalgia of the new

Kate Richards and Ross Gibson spoke about a project Unhomely and  Life after wartime . I caught Unhomely later on that night as part of the pop up shows.
