Project Description

This project will develop new curatorial models to enable Australian art galleries to respond effectively to changes in the medium of photography wrought by digital technologies. By conducting the first comprehensive analysis of nearly five decades of Australian photography curating and comparing it to curatorial approaches in related institutions locally and internationally, the project seeks to 1. Identify the crucial role of photography exhibitions in the shaping of Australian visual culture, and 2. Develop opportunities for curators to better engage with the current proliferation of images, including new forms and practices of photography enabled by the Internet.
