Join us for the 2022 PhotoAccess Open Day, and discover what’s happening at the ACT and region’s centre for contemporary photography, film and video and media arts.
Explore the PhotoAccess gallery where VIEW2022 will be on show. This is the annual showcase of the ACT and regions’ early career artists in photo-media practice. This curated exhibition presents challenging and diverse new work in analogue and digital photography, alternative processes, video and experimental multi-media. Meet exhibitors and hear them discuss their works in the Huw Davies Gallery.
After wandering through the exhibition, discover the PhotoAccess library, member’s area, film-developing studio and fully equipped darkroom. Here you will find the 2022 artists-in-residence and learn about their unique experimentation with the image-making process. Each year, PhotoAccess supports local and interstate artists, both emerging and established, by awarding residencies to expand and develop photo-media practices.
Outside we will have a variety of activities for everybody to get creative. Make your own sun-print cyanotypes, create a hologram magnet, try your hand at the Afghan camera, have your portrait taken with a large format camera, and check out our market stall with heaps of second-hand bargain camera gear.
Or simply relax in the beautiful Manuka Arts Centre gardens, enjoy some live music, have a drink and something to eat. Our neighbours and friends, ArtsoundFM, will be broadcasting live from the event, so you might even end up on the radio!
From 12noon – 4pm, Saturday 26th February 2022. The Open Day is free and there’s no need to book a ticket. Just come along.
