George Gittoes: I Witness
18 February - 5 April 2015
George Gittoes: I Witness is the first major survey in Australia of the work of leading Australian artist and filmmaker George Gittoes. Gittoes is a nationally significant and internationally recognised Australian artist best known for creating works in regions of conflict and upheaval around the world including Rwanda, Bosnia, Afghanistan and Iraq. Known for working in areas of international conflict, here Gittoes sharpens his eye around the moral, ethical and spiritual dimensions of being human.
Curated for Hazelhurst Regional Gallery and Arts Centre by Rod Pattenden, George Gittoes: I Witness presents the major themes explored throughout Gittoes' 40 year career with a diverse body of work that includes paintings, drawings, printmaking, artist diaries from the fields of war, installation and film. It is drawn from the artist's and other private collections with many works never having been seen publically in Australia.A Hazelhurst Regional Gallery and Arts Centre touring exhibition.
