Now calling for proposals for exhibitions in 2015
PhotoAccess Huw Davies Gallery is now calling for proposals for exhibitions in 2015. PhotoAccess invites artists at all stages of their careers to develop and showcase contemporary photo-based art in a supportive and stimulating artistic environment. The PhotoAccess Huw Davies Gallery is dedicated to the contemporary photo-based arts, and presents a dynamic program of exhibitions across its three spaces. It exhibits both new work and work from the PhotoAccess collection.

Artists, curators and community groups are invited to submit exhibition proposals. PhotoAccess is particularly interested in receiving proposals that:

  • present new still and/or moving image work by emerging, mid-career and/or established artists
  • involve artistic experimentation and innovation
  • encourage, develop and extend critical debate about contemporary photo-based art practice
  • reflect or document the ACT and region and the creative interests of the community

Exhibitions may occupy one or more rooms in the Huw Davies Gallery. PhotoAccess encourages artists to consider applying for the entire Huw Davies Gallery (all three spaces) to exhibit a large, resolved and coherent body of work.

Proposals due 12 August 2014. Click here for more information.

YWCA Canberra recently partnered with PhotoAccess on an eight-week Black-and-White film photography workshop for students of Lake Tuggeranong College in mid 2014. The students took photographs with analogue cameras, developed the film and printed the images in the PhotoAccess darkroom. The resulting works will be exhibited in the Tuggeranong Arts Centre Foyer Gallery in an exhibition titled The Big Picture - opening 6pm Thursday 24 July and running until 2 August 2014.
