An expansive view of Ann Shelton’s tightly conceived, large scale and hyperreal photography

Ann Shelton is one of New Zealand’s leading artists, operating where documentary and conceptual photography meet. Seeking insight and understanding of our collective histories and cultural memories, Shelton excavates narratives buried within, or sitting upon, a psychological and hyperreal landscape.

Dates: 16 December 2017 – 15 April 2018
