Dancer Trevor Santos will perform in response to notions of what a portrait can be.

This event is part of The Portrait exhibition curated by Karl Halliday and Josephine Mead, is an investigation into the emerging and fluid possibilities of portrait photography and its impact upon image-making today.

Ten artists have been invited to produce ‘a portrait’ for exhibition. The artists selected work in both traditional modes of portrait photography and alternative multidisciplinary practices. By considering the medium in an expanded sense, the artists are able to contemplate, critique, and challenge the limits of what a portrait can be.
