Free lunch time tours of Out of Sight with Nanaimo Art Gallery
Curator Jesse Birch: Thursday, September 29 and Thursday, October 27 at noon.
 
Out of Sight is a touring exhibition from the Vancouver Art Gallery that features a selection of recently-acquired photographs by Eadweard Muybridge (1830-1904) and Harold Edgerton (1903-1990), two giants in the history of photography. Both artists are celebrated for their revolutionary works that expand our understanding of time and motion and extend the capacity of human perception by making time stand still.
