13 April – 28 April 2018

On View: Thinking Bodies, Dancing Minds installation documentation, 2018, documentation by Christo Crocker
Lucette Aldous, 'Floor Barre', 2016, installation documentation by Christo Crocker.

Concerned with the act of seeing and being seen, On View is a series of video portraits of Australian dance artists. Exploring the dimensions of portraiture and how we view each other, On View reveals the diverse ways in which dancers think through their bodies.

Designed for the 40th anniversary celebrations of VCA Dance, Healey’s exhibition brings together a collection of dance icons Dame Lucette Aldous, Nanette Hassall and Professor Shirley McKechnie, who taught at the School of Dance over many years, with 3 outstanding graduates from different decades; Shona Erskine, Benjamin Hancock and James Batchelor.
