2011 Daphne Mayo Lecture

CONTEMPORARY AUSTRALIAN PHOTOGRAPHY SINCE 1980

Dr Anne Marsh Wednesday 24 August 2011 The University of Queensland Art Museum

In this lecture Anne Marsh will introduce a range of practices, themes and issues that have arisen in the world of art photography over the last thirty years. Drawing on her recently published book – Look: Contemporary Australian Photography since 1980 – Anne will consider the critical and curatorial agendas which intersect with practice and look at the ways that artists themselves engaged with particular issues and themes. The dialogue between conceptual art and documentary, the discourse on the gaze, the would-be predatory character of the photographer, and the interrogation of identities of race, gender and place will be considered. Anne will conclude with some comments on recent debates about the medium in a digital world and showcase the archival website that accompanies the book.
