Pedestrian’s Weekly Art Wrap Up

What We’re getting in early on this one because it’s worth putting in the calendar now:
A single night, a single man, a single photographic stand. Jackson Eaton’s third solo exhibition in Perth, entitled Single, will be a photo presentation, created and exhibited within a 24 hour time frame, examining the idea of the ‘one night stand’. Eaton will spend the night in the Free Range gallery with a stranger, documenting the experience with Polaroid photographs, before opening the gallery to the public the next day. Photos taken over the course of the previous night will be on display, as part of a site-based installation of the night’s activities.
Amazing? Damn right!
When One night only y’all – August 31st, 8am to 8pm
Where Free Range Gallery – 339 Wellington St, Perth WA
