28 May – 21 August

Penrith Regional Gallery & The Lewers Bequest is proud to present Hazelhurst Regional Gallery & Arts Centre’s touring exhibition I Witness, the first major survey in Australia of the work of leading Australian artist and filmmaker George Gittoes. The exhibition presents a chronological journey of Gittoes’ 40-year career with a diverse body of work that includes paintings, drawings, printmaking, and artist diaries from the fields of war, as well as installation and film.

Continually pushing the boundaries of his art practice by positioning himself at sites of conflict and upheaval, this exhibition reveals a remarkable body of work from his mobile studio of camera, video and richly illustrated diaries that document the sites of cultural conflict including Nicaragua and the Philippines in 1980s, Rwanda, Cambodia and the Middle East in 1990s, and more recently in Pakistan, Iraq, and Afghanistan.
