Photo-media artist Anne Zahalka has been exhibiting since the early 80s. Her work explores and challenges cultural and gendered stereotyping by deconstructing familiar images and offering up a new perspective.

Join us (and Anne!) as we look at a few of her works in the collection and chat about her principles and practice.
