Australian Centre for Photography is proud to announce the opening of our new and extended premises located at 19 Foley Street, next to the current ACP Project Space Gallery in Darlinghurst. This new and dynamic venue will see us expand our creative footprint through increased gallery space, an ACP resource library, and education facilities. Additionally, the ACP office has relocated to 15 Foley Street. These spaces, designed to host our ever-popular photography courses, exhibitions, and public programs, will create an important hub for artists and photographic enthusiasts across Sydney.
Since 1973, ACP has followed its mission statement to create a dedicated space to advocate for the promotion of photo-media based creative practice. Now in 2020, our Foley Street premises will allow us to strengthen this connection to the city’s creative community through ACP’s curatorial and education programs. The ACP's new creative hub provides a space space for professionals, artists, and students to learn and create together.
During the current pandemic the ACP will follow government guidelines. The team will adhere strictly to social distancing measures and hygiene practices, as well as implementing contact tracing for all events. Our team understand the need to adapt so our community can be assured that we have taken every measure to keep them safe. The new premises are now open to visitors at 19-21 Foley Street, Darlinghurst. Within the next month we will begin hosting a selection of our face-to-face education programs, in addition to current exhibitions 'Sense The Music: Ruth Medjber and Maclay Heriot' and 'Two Flights' by Liss Fenwick.
