at RMIT Capitol Theatre.
Gold-coin donation, no bookings required.
Coinciding with the exhibition In a Lonely Place at CCP, Gregory Crewdson will present a free lecture at the RMIT Capitol Theatre that will detail selections from three major series, Fireflies (1996), Beneath the Roses (2003 – 2008), Sanctuary (2010) and, presented for the first time, the video Field Notes (2009).
The exhibition title comes from Nicholas Ray's 1950s film noir of the same name, one of many films that inspired Crewdson. In a Lonely Place is evocative of an underlying mood—a quiet feeling of alienation and loneliness that links the three series selected by curators Estelle Af Malmborg, Jens Erdman Rasmussen and Felix Hoffmann. In a Lonely Place presents the first comprehensive exhibition of Crewdson's work in Australia.
In a Lonely Place will be exhibited at CCP from 28 September—11 November 2012.
