Nicholas Aloisio-Shearer’s black and white photography tears apart this assumption with both clinical precision and grotesque abandon. His portraits and still lifes appear to show…

After Technology

Group Exhibition

By Hannah Jenkins — 15 March, 2019

A speculative review of the UTS Gallery group exhibition After Technology. Future anxieties are too much to process. The old narratives of human beings wielding technology are now obsolete. Instead, technology directs us:  we cultivate and obsess over it; it commercialises and consumes us. My head spins with political echo chambers and lag. I can…
