New York City from all angles

From Standing Room Only, 1:50 pm on 4 April 2021

At the end of 2019 Dunedin three artists went to New York to explore the city, and capture different scenes - from different perspectives. Little did they know they were visiting just before the city streets would empty, because of the Covid-19 pandemic. The exhibition Escape from New York is the end result - it combines the work of Jay Hutchinson who creates textiles out of rubbish, and two photographers Petra Leary who uses drones for her aerial photography, and Tim D- a photographer who documents youth subcultures and changing urban environments. Each of the trio have a background in graffiti, making the Big Apple the perfect playground for inspiration for their show, which has just opened at Olga Gallery in Dunedin.
