Joyce Campbell: HIDE

You are warmly invited to the Ilam Campus Gallery Exhibition Opening.

Joyce Campbell reveals to us an almost imperceptible thread in her recent photographs, bringing together a group of images which have non-human creatures at their core: eel, mountain lion, raven and spider.

  • Location: Ilam Campus Gallery, Block 2, School of Fine Arts
  • Exhibition runs till 29 October. There will also be an artist talk for this exhibition 1pm Thursday 8 October
