WALL POWER: Contemporary Australian Photography

, , ,

September 7th, 2017 to November 11th, 2018

Curated by Toby Meagher

WALL POWER: Contemporary Australian Photography brings together 22 leading Australian photographers. At the core of WALL POWER lies the photographic image and the immediacy and power of the medium.

This exhibition presented as part of the Australia – Germany cultural exchange in 2017 and showcases contemporary Australian photography and presents some of the strongest examples of Australian photography to a broad international audience over a two-year tour of Cologne, Berlin, London and Paris.

The curator Toby Meagher states that, ‘Multiple curatorial threads can be drawn from this nationwide collection of works, but they are united in their exploration of the myths and legends surrounding Australia’s unique light, landscape and history. In this broad spectrum of practical and conceptual approaches you will find insights into the Australian national identity, which is rich in complexities and conflicts.’
