Abstract/Description

Throughout her adventures, Alice in Wonderland grapples with her identity. While this is a common feature of most children’s books, Alice’s questioning often invokes philosophical ideas. Similarly, contemporary photographers have focused their lens on the transitional stages of childhood to raise questions about how we view the world. Curated by Fiona Kearney, this exhibition presented the work of a number of internationally renowned photographers whose images took us through the looking glass into the upended world of the child. Participating artists included Rineke Dijkstra, David Farrell, Anna Gaskell, Martin Healy, Loretta Lux and Wendy McMurdo.
