Amos Gebhardt at The Substation


By Tolarno

Spooky Action (at a distance)
12 Feb – 27 Mar 2021
Free admission, bookings essential

Amos Gebhardt brings a cinematic force to large-scale, moving image installations and photography, collaborating with performers, choreographers and musicians to create both intimate and widescreen tableaus. This major exhibition marks the re-opening of The Substation and is a PHOTO 2021 International Festival of Photography event.

Melbourne premiere! Amos Gebhardt’s major three-channel video work, Small acts of resistance is screening for the first time in Melbourne, along with There are no others and Lovers. In the Main Performance Space, Level 1, is a stunning presentation of the four channel Evanescence.  Make sure to experience this soon – Evanescence is showing only until 6 March 2021.

Centred on themes of identity, queerness, resistance and entanglement, this extensive series of Gebhardt’s works form a labyrinth of film and photographs that unify the artist’s practice in a bold new way.

ARTIST TALK: Amos Gebhardt will be in conversation with Susan van Wyk, Senior Curator of Photography at the National Gallery of Victoria on Friday 26 February, 6-8pm. Book here.

Hear Amos Gebhardt walk through the exhibition with ABC RN The Art Show.
