About the exhibition:

Antipodean emanations: cameraless photographs from Australia and New Zealand

10 March 2018 to 27 May 2018

MGA’s landmark exhibition Antipodean emanations: cameraless photographs from Australia and New Zealand showcases over 80 cameraless photographs and brings together Australian and New Zealand artists who push boundaries through experimentation, unearthing the elemental properties of photographic practice.

Many of the works have never been exhibited in Australia, and their inclusion has been made possible through a partnership between MGA and the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery in New Zealand. In 2016 Govett-Brewster Art Gallery explored the international history of cameraless photography through their exhibition Emanations: the art of the cameraless photograph. Using this exhibition as a springboard, MGA continues this conversation. Beginning in the 1930s when avant-garde styles were affecting visual culture generally, this exhibition highlights the lasting impact of these traditions on photographic practice. Putting the spotlight on Australian and New Zealand artists, MGA’s exhibition explores experimentation and innovation with works by 20th-century luminaries such as Max Dupain and Len Lye, as well as contemporary artists such as Danica Chappell, Gavin Hipkins, Anne Noble and Justine Varga.

Curated by Stella Loftus-Hills. Presented by MGA in association with Govett-Brewster Art Gallery, New Plymouth, New Zealand.
