NGV Festival of Photography
17 Mar — 18 Jun 2017 at National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne, Australia
As part of the NGV Festival of Photography, the NGV presents a suite of contemporary photography exhibitions, including presentations by William Eggleston, Bill Henson, Patrick Pound, Zoë Croggon and Ross Coulter, alongside dedicated events and programs.
Photography is one of the most diverse and prolific areas of contemporary practice, including as it does the work of practitioners who see themselves in the more traditional guise of ‘photographer’, along with multi-disciplinary artists.
Taking over a number of galleries across the NGV, the NGV Festival of Photography highlights new acquisitions of international and Australian photographers’ works, which have been actively collected by the NGV in recent years.
Other displays will present the work of some of the most challenging and exciting photographers working today, including: Elad Lassry, Sophie Calle, Paola Pivi, Pieter Hugo, Danny Singer, Ceal Floyer, Lucia Koch, David Rosetzky, Polly Borland, Adam Fuss, Thomas Demand.
The NGV Festival of Photography provides an opportunity to be immersed in exciting new works of photography, digitally produced prints as well as film based projects by both established and emerging artists.
