PhotoAccess now invites artists and curators at all stages of their careers to propose exhibitions of contemporary photo-based art for the 2020 Huw Davies Gallery season. This is an opportunity to showcase your work in a professional gallery with an established local and national profile, engaged audiences and a dynamic network of artists, curators and arts commentators.
PhotoAccess is a unique space for making, sharing and discovering creative photography and photo-based art. We’re a place where local, interstate and overseas artists, curators and audiences gather to explore how contemporary image-making shapes our world.
Located, in Canberra, at the Manuka Arts Centre, PhotoAccess is a non-profit, member-based organisation. Each year, we present a dynamic program of exhibitions featuring emerging and established photographers and photo-artists, together with accessible public talks, events, performances and artist residencies that foster critical debate about, understanding of and engagement with image practice.
Our program aims to feature the very best work by photo-media artists, demonstrating both technical and artistic excellence, to inform and inspire our visitors. All proposals must be submitted online and will be assessed by the PhotoAccess Gallery Committee.
The Gallery Committee is particularly interested in proposals that:
PhotoAccess welcomes submissions from interstate and international applicants and applicants from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, LGBTQIA+ and people with lived experience of disability.
Exhibitions may occupy one or more gallery spaces in the Huw Davies Gallery. PhotoAccess encourages artists/curators to consider applying for the all three gallery spaces to exhibit a large, resolved and coherent series of works.
Artists and curators have the option of applying for an Artist Support Package in 2020. As part of this package, gallery venue hire fees are waived and a stipend is provided to assist with the costs associated with mounting an exhibition.
Applications Close: 5pm AEST, Tuesday 14 May 2019.
All applications MUST be submitted online using the form below. Late applications will not be accepted. All applicants will be notified of the outcome by end of August 2019.
