Senior Curator at Contemporary Art at the Art Gallery of New South Wales Isobel Parker Philip joins artist Grace Wood to discuss the site responsive group exhibition ‘Garden Variety: Photography, Politics and the Picturesque’, taking place at the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne.

Grace’s layered collage based works engage the Gardens’ rich history, combining imagery from social archival documentation, fleshy detailed scans of plant specimens and botanical information.

Join us to find out more about the curatorial and artistic processes involved in the creation of this ambitious exhibition.

Presented as part of PHOTO 2021.
