A 60-minute discussion-based tour of the exhibition The Body Electric with for people who are carers.

Art for Carers meets at the Gallery on the third Tuesday of each month (January – November). Participants engage with the national collection and temporary exhibitions through tours and art making workshops with Gallery guides, educators and curators.

The Body Electric presents the work of women-identifying artists on the subjects of sex, pleasure and desire. The exhibition features key works by some of the pioneers of photography and video, including Polly Borland’s bodies wrapped in stockings, Nan Goldin’s personal and candid images of friends and a video by Cheryl Donegan examining clichés of women’s sexuality. The images in this exhibition show how sex, love and loss are an animating part of the human experience.

Art for Carers is a program developed with Carers ACT.
