The Alchemists – Australian Centre for Photography
Pleased to be able to contribute to what’s looking like a landmark Australian new-old-new photography show at the Australian Centre for Photography in Sydney from October to December. Read on for your chemical fix…
From the ACP website: This is a collaborative project between Australian Centre for Photography, The Australian National University and The University of Sydney, Sydney College of the Arts. At a time when digital images are rapidly created and consumed, this project activates experimental darkroom processes within contemporary photography. Born of darkroom experimentation and mixed with innovative digital photography techniques, this project will invoke new ‘hybrid’ practices and dialogues through the production of an exhibition, symposium and masterclass. It will address a current gap in understanding about the fascinating nexus between analogue and digital photography and will provide a creative audience with access to participatory practices as well as an insight into an Australian perspective within the Asia-Pacific region.
The Alchemists project, begins with an exhibition (30 October – 13 December) at the Australian Centre for Photography (ACP) showcasing the work of 25 artists from Australia, New Zealand, Japan & Thailand.
