Join artist Ying Ang (Australia) in conversation about their practice.

This event is part of an international season of PHOTO LIVE talks presented by Photo Australia, Melbourne in collaboration with Autograph. The ten free online conversations between artists, photographers and curators from Australia and the UK will explore ideas of identity and belonging in the context of human rights, representation, and social justice. This program highlights the importance of centring black, Indigenous, feminist, queer and other marginalised voices and storytelling in photography.

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).
