29 July - 3 September 2011
The Double Effect is a visual arts exhibition that uses Tom Holloway’s play And No More Shall We Part as a departure point to consider the universal theme of mortality.
Located in the foyer of the SBW Stables Theatre, the exhibition consists of conceptually urgent, visually sumptuous art works that will extend, enhance and potentially challenge Griffin’s production of And No More Shall We Part.
The title Double Effect draws attention to the doubling of art forms – both performing and visual – as well as the predicament of mortality.
The group exhibition includes Alumni of Sydney College of the Arts, Master of Fine Arts program with Francesca Heinz, Elise Petith, Leyla Stevens, Ben Terakes, Matt Yeldham and curator Sara Givins.
This exhibition hopes to provoke discussion and exchange between the performing and visual arts communities against the background of Holloway’s play.
