Michael Reid Gallery, Sydney and Berlin, in conjunction with the Australian Government will stage an exhibition of Australia’s most significant contemporary photographic practitioners. Wall Power forms a core part of the programming for Australia now 2017 – a year-long program celebrating Australian arts, culture, science and innovation across Germany.
Wall Power brings together 22 leading contemporary Australian photographers, sourcing key works from both artists and private collections. Multiple curatorial threads can be drawn from this nationwide collection of works, but they are united in their exploration of the myths and legends surrounding Australia’s unique light, landscape and history.
This selection of Australian photographers encompasses a broad spectrum of practical and conceptual approaches. Collectively, the works provide an insight into the Australian national identity, which is rich in complexities and conflicts. At the exhibition’s core lies the photographic image and the immediacy and power of the medium.
Wall Power tours to London in May, 2018 and Paris from June to October, 2018.
Supported by the Australian Government & Australia now.
