After receiving a set of encyclopedia books from his father when he was 10 years old, Gabriel Jia developed a fascination with ancient Christian churches. Armed with his camera and one week of preparation, Jia headed to the ancient town of Lalibela in Ethiopia to discover the 800 year old rock-hewn churches that are still in use today.
Gabriel Jia's first solo exhibition, The Hidden Pilgrimage, is the result of this eye-opening journey to discover his passion. Please join us for the opening night.
5% of print sales will be donated to Ethiopiaid, a not-for-profit charity raising much-needed funds for community partners in Ethiopia. Opening Night
8 August 2019 6pm - 8pm
