Please join us for the screening and exhibition of ‘Tell Them About Me’ by Ryan Cookson — a new short film and photographic project by Melbourne-based photographer Ryan Cookson.
The film offers a rare glimpse into the unique motorsport of ‘spinning’. Inspired by amateur videos of car spinners online, Cookson traveled to Soweto and Johannesburg, South Africa in 2016 and 2017, to document this subculture.
Friday 29 November, 6 – 9pm at Hillvale Gallery. Exhibition continues each weekend 12 – 4pm, closing Sunday 15 December.
