I'm fortunate enough to be exhibiting my Australia. Seriously? work again next month. If your keen to see big photographic prints about Australian life that will entertain please read on, the media release from the Moran Arts Foundation is below:
AUSTRALIA. SERIOUSLY? Places, spaces and things.
January 20, 2017 – Queensland photographer Trent Mitchell won the $50,000 Moran Contemporary Photographic Prize in 2015 for Boy in Boat with judges describing the photo as a “quirky and beautifully observed moment”. His exhibition Australia. Seriously? follows this same theme and opens at the Moran Gallery, Sylvania on 7 February.
The exhibition is a body of work selected from a collection of over 5,500 film exposures created by Mitchell during his travels across the country. “Colourful intersections of spaces, places and things engage my curiosity in a playful act with my everyday Australia, camera in hand.“ said Mitchell.
‘Australia. Seriously?’ will be officially opened by Photographic historian and 2016 Moran Photographic Prize judge, Alan Davies. Now Emeritus Curator of Photographs at the State Library of New South Wales, Davies was the Library’s first curator from 1989 to 2014, overseeing a collection of a more than a million images.
‘Australia. Seriously?’ Officially opens at the Moran Gallery Sylvania on Tuesday 7 February from 6pm to 8pm.
The exhibition will be open from Wednesday 8 February to Sunday 2 April 2017, 10am to 4pm daily with free entry.
