Watch back the PHOTO LIVE series of talks, highlighting the importance of centring black, Indigenous, feminist, queer and other marginalised voices and storytelling in photography
Ten free online conversations between artists, photographers and curators from Australia, exploring ideas of identity and belonging in the context of human rights, representation, and social justice. These events are part of an international season of PHOTO LIVE talks presented by Photo Australia in collaboration with Autograph. This program highlights the importance of centring black, Indigenous, feminist, queer and other marginalised voices and storytelling in photography.
There are six more conversations in the series scheduled for October. To find out more and watch them live, visit our events page. We've made the first four in the series available to watch back below.
These talks are part of our exhibition Care | Contagion | Community — Self & Other and are taking place in the lead up to PHOTO 2022 International Festival of Photography (29 April – 22 May 2022).
Photo Australia produces PHOTO International Festival of Photography in Melbourne and across regional Victoria. Delivered in collaboration with over 40 cultural institutions, museums, galleries and universities, the Festival features free exhibitions, outdoor displays and artist commissions, alongside events and education programs. The Festival invites artists, curators, writers, academics and audiences to interrogate the major issues of our time through a central theme. The theme for PHOTO 2022 is ‘Being Human’ and the Festival will run from 29 April to 22 May 2022.
