Inside/Out: an Efavirenz dream

Inside/Out is more than a combination of words; it is also an invitation and a challenge for you to navigate between spaces and through uneasy conversations.

Artist Sebastian Zagarella presents his interpretation of living with HIV in a contemporary domestic environment inviting the audience to enter into, and consider, a personal perspective on living with HIV. 

Date: 17 January – 3 February
Location: Chapel off Chapel, 12 Little Chapel St, Prahran 

Everyone is welcome to join the artist for the exhibition launch on Wednesday 17 Jan from 6.30 – 8.30pm
