During their extensive journeys, they created sketchbooks, drawings and paintings to record conversations and chance meetings with people from all walks of life. These works will introduce you to real people from distant nations, casting aside orientalism to reveal authentic encounters. This exhibition sees the world through the unique intimacy of the sketch. It reflects upon individual experiences of travel in an era shaped by photography and global media. It is a perceptive journey through people and places that have been clouded by misapprehension. 'Elsewhere' visits Tamworth in 2020. Coinciding with the 40th anniversary of Edward Said's book 'Orientalism'. Theurated by Dr Sam Bowker with the support of Create NSW, HR Gallop Gallery and Charles Sturt University.
