Lorraine Field’s exhibition Alas is a photographic response to the loss of her husband and companion of some five decades, poet Roger Field. Situating her own body within landscapes that simultaneously depict new growth and decay, Field uses her photographs and Roger’s poetry to explore both the personal and universal experiences of loss and aging.

Other Histories is a solo exhibition by Pakistani-Canadian artist, Amin Rehman, in collaboration with international activist, writer and commentator, Tariq Ali. The exhibition comments on neo-colonialism and assertive globalisation through wall-based text works employing texts by Tariq Ali, Noam Chomsky and Edward Said. Rehman uses Perso-Arabic scripts (Kufi and Talib) to encompass his diasporic identity within a contemporary art practice.
