The Living Room is the interactive, evolving installation space that launched in the Young Gallery in 2016. Exhibitions pair up with our current Exhibitions on Gallery Level 1.
Sharing a theme with Vivian Maier: Street Photographer and James Street North: Vintage Photographs by Cees and Annerie van Gemerden, STREETWATCH is an interactive exploration of street photography through a variety of historic and contemporary mediums. Photo essays include an historic survey of downtown Hamilton circa 1950-1970 from Jack Whorwood, a day-in the life of Supercrawl by George Qua-Enoo, and a sample of the observational works generated by Titi Postma’s ongoing, possibly never-ending, chronicle of the city. These images will be presented alongside an evolving, crowdsourced photo wall, interactive slide table, and collections of historic photographic ephemera.
You can get your images up in the gallery too by simply snapping a shot with your camera or phone, upload it to your social media, then just tag us and use the hashtag #AGHLivingRoom!
EXHIBITION TOURS ARE FREE WITH ADMISSION EVERY WEDNESDAY, SATURDAY, SUNDAY AND STATUTORY HOLIDAY AT 1:00 PM
