The Shifting Lens: Reading Pictures

Wednesday 8 August at NGV International on St Kilda Road.

“We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are.”
–  Anaïs Nin

We all look at pictures but how and why do we ‘read’ them so differently? Join Susie May, Educator, in a session to celebrate the International Year of Reading.

Susie will take us on a revealing and sometimes humorous journey through the artworld at the NGV, from a 16th century portrait of Lucretia Borgia to controversial contemporary photographs by Bill Henson, as we discuss the cultural, experiential, scholarly and current societal  factors that  may radically influence what we see in pictures and how we interpret them.

Enjoy a complimentary drink and an opportunity to enjoy the Napoleon at Night activities to coincide with the exhibition Napoleon: Revolution to Empire (tickets for the exhibition available on the night or through Ticketmaster).

The event will take place on Wednesday 8 August at NGV International on St Kilda Road.
