Event description

Description

You and your guests are invited to the official launch of Sydney Festival exhibitions

In Your Dreams

and

Tell: Contemporary Indigenous Photography


Sydney Festival exhibitions will be officially opened by Wesley Enoch, Festival Director




Tell: Indigenous Contemporary Photography

Curated by Jessica Clark

Tell: Indigenous Contemporary Photography explores Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander life, history and culture through a focus on photography and its expanded field. Bringing together new commissions and recent works by 17 Australian Indigenous artists and collaborators, the exhibition presents a diverse collection of photo-based and photo-inspired works that embrace tradition and culture, as well as the potential that new technologies offer contemporary practice.

Presented by the Ballarat International Foto Biennale in association with Sydney Festival and UNSW Galleries.

Exhibition dates: 6 January – 24 February 2018


In Your Dreams

Curated by Felicity Fenner and Cherie McNair

In Your Dreams includes photographic and film-based works from Australia, Bangladesh, China, France, Greece, Jordan, Mexico, Nigeria, Papua New Guinea, South Africa and the US. The people and communities depicted in the exhibition are not generally seen in popular representations of 21st century societies, their complex situation relegated to the “too-hard” basket by media consumers unaffected by the harshest impacts of inequality of wealth and opportunity.

Presented in partnership with the Australian Centre of Photography (ACP) in association with Sydney Festival, UNSW Centre for Ideas and the Grand Challenge on Inequality.

Exhibition dates: 6 January – 7 April 2018
