Batteries Not Included – Australian Centre for Photography – Thursday 29th Jan 2009
The ACP opens a show next week that I curated with Malcolm Smith called
BATTERIES NOT INCLUDED.
Spat + Loogie
& Jonathan Zawada
The blurb reads:
Environments that encourage experimentation and risk-taking are often where the most interesting new ideas can be found. In these spaces, unlikely unions produce curious crossbreeds that defy easy classification.
Batteries Not Included at the Australian Centre for Photography presents the work of 12 artists investigating the hybrid offspring of photomedia; splicing photography with performance, reanimating found images or mechanising the moving image.
With backgrounds and influences as diverse as fashion, street culture, education, new and old technologies and telemarketing, the artists in this exhibition come from the fringes of contemporary visual art practice. With their appetite for risk-taking, experimentalism and disregard of convention, this selection of artists combines the fresh and energetic work of emerging artists with the ground-breaking work of legendary avant guard filmmaker Paul Winkler.
Get down there on Thursday the 29th January from 6 – 8pm
