Our exhibition space, the Huw Davies Gallery, is the only not-for-profit gallery in the ACT exclusively dedicated to contemporary photo-based art.
PhotoAccess invites artists at all stages of their careers to showcase contemporary photo-based art in a supportive and stimulating artistic environment. We cultivate excellence in the PhotoAccess exhibition program by supporting great art and arts practice. Our program aims to show the very best work by local and visiting photo-based artists, demonstrating both technical and artistic excellence, to inform and inspire audiences.
Artists and curators are invited to submit exhibition proposals. Proposals are considered by the PhotoAccess Gallery Committee. The Gallery Committee is particularly interested in proposals that:
Exhibitions may occupy one or more gallery spaces within the Huw Davies Gallery. PhotoAccess encourages artists/curators to consider applying for the all three spaces of Huw Davies Gallery to exhibit a large, resolved and coherent series of works. Exhibition proposals are assessed by the Gallery Committee and are considered on their merit and availability of dates, in order to present a diverse gallery program of high standards.
Submissions for our 2019 gallery program will open in April/May 2018.
Artists and curators had the option of applying for an Artist Support Package in 2018. As part of the Artist Support Package, gallery venue hire fees are waived and a stipend is provided to assist with the costs associated with mounting an exhibition. The Artist Support Package is a 2018 initiative funded through PhotoAccess and the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy.
