We are very excited to announce our collaboration with Head On Festival for 2015 to present the work of acclaimed Iranian photographer Gohar Dashti for the first time in Australia! Her witty photography looks at how a history of war and revolution can influence the national psyche and cultural memory.
Our next cycle of exhibitions will also include new works from esteemed Australian photographer Phillip George. Exploring similar ideas on the role of the landscape in the construction of national identity, George examines the formation of global and local collective memories.
As part of our Emerging Artist Program, Australian photographer Markus Anderson and Turkish-based photographer Elif Suyabatmaz engage in a photographic conversation that breaks geographical boundaries to compare and mirror social identities.
Our after-hours Street Screen will also examine the urban and natural landscape and memory with work of James Mauger and Ireneusz Luty.
In the 100th year since the ANZAC landings at Gallipoli the ACP looks to create an engaging dialogue between the East and the West, our exhibiting artists reflect on the relationship of place, culture and identity.
The exhibitions will run from 11 April to 7 June 2015.
