City Gallery


Art Encounter

Saturday 18 February, 11.30am

General Admission


Visiting an art gallery can often be an overwhelming experience. From materials to meaning, what you see can be baffling and there is always more to see. Not to mention all the standing required!   

Art Encounters is here to help. In these 30-minute sessions we’ll guide you through a Gallery experience that will have you coming back for more.   

Each session will be an encounter with a single artwork. We’ll spend the time looking, examining, and exploring the elements that make the art work.   

Slow down, look, and wonder, and get to know an artwork more intimately.  

February Topic:
Emily Hunt’s Hand of Sabazius (2015) recalls the mysterious cult of Sabazius, an ancient deity about which little is now known. Join us this month for a discussion about how the artists in Antireality perversion void engage in world building through making artworks which reference the obscure, the arcane, and the occult.
