PhotoAccess Call for Proposals: 2018 Exhibition Program
PhotoAccess invites artists at all stages of their careers to showcase contemporary photo-based art in a supportive and stimulating artistic environment. Artists and curators are invited to submit exhibition proposals for our 2018 gallery program.
Our exhibition space, the Huw Davies Gallery, is the only not-for-profit gallery in the ACT exclusively dedicated to contemporary photo-based art. We cultivate excellence in the PhotoAccess exhibition program by supporting great art and arts practice. Our program aims to show the very best work by local and visiting photo-based artists, demonstrating both technical and artistic excellence, to inform and inspire audiences. Our exhibitions and public programs encourage and extend the critical debate about contemporary photo-based art practice.
Proposals are considered by the PhotoAccess Gallery Committee. The Gallery Committee is particularly interested in proposals that:
- present new still and/or moving image work by emerging, mid-career and/or established artists
- involve artistic experimentation and innovation
- encourage, develop and extend critical debate about contemporary photo-based art practice
- reflect or document the ACT and region and the creative interests of the community
