Nunnery Gallery is pleased to introduce artist Tom Lovelace in conversation with Belfast based photographer Jim McKeever about his current exhibition Significant Objects.
Tom and Jim will be in conversation about Jim's project Significant Objects, currently showing at the Nunnery. They will discuss the strategies used by Jim to visually respond to narratives of institutional abuse within the care system and the different platforms for disseminating social documentary photography. They will also discuss how artists negotiate multiple and diverse subject matter within one practice. The talk will be followed by a Q&A.
