‘Reconfigured/Rediscovered’ brings together a group of artists to extend our perceptions of photography and image-making into new realms. Highlighting the permeability of photography, the exhibition questions the relationship between image and reality, asking how images operate and how they can be created without a camera.
Forms of photography that have been liberated from a traditional relationship between camera and print are explored as the selected artists negotiate the possibilities of installation, time and space, and early photographic techniques.
‘Reconfigured/Rediscovered’ challenges the very nature of pictorial representation - and photography's inherent self-reflexivity with examples of bold, boundary-pushing experimentation.
Featuring: Christian Capurro, Ben Cauchi, Danica Chappell, Peta Clancy, Daniel Crooks, Izabela Pluta and Robyn Stacey.
Presented in collaboration with over 40 cultural institutions, museums, galleries and universities, the Festival will take place from 18 January to 7 March 2021. The program includes free exhibitions, outdoor displays and artist commissions across Melbourne and Regional Victoria, as well as talks, artist-led workshops and education programs.
