Christchurch exhibition, My Place, goes on display in Adelaide
31 January 2006
Bruce Connew’s My Place exhibition of sixty-eight photographs and accompanying texts that reveal the lives and ambitions of Christchurch and its people, opens tomorrow in Adelaide.
From a Buddhist temple to the Governors Bay Tavern, from the Bridle Path to Camel Cottage, My Place illustrates the diversity of meaning the words ‘my place’ have for Christchurch people to a new audience.
Mr Connew and curator Glenn Busch, working with graduate photography students from the School of Fine Arts at the University of Canterbury, recorded the images and stories in places that have special significance in the lives of sixty-eight people in and around Christchurch.
My Place, first exhibited at COCA gallery in The Christchurch Arts Festival 2003, is being exhibited at Adelaide Fringe 2006 and is sponsored by The Christchurch/Adelaide Sister City Committee.
Touring this exhibition to Adelaide is a joint initiative of the Christchurch/Adelaide Sister City Committee and the Adelaide City Council in conjunction with CoCA and The Christchurch Arts Festival.
