Max & Olive

The photographic life of Olive Cotton and Max Dupain

 

This is the first exhibition to look at the work of photographers Olive Cotton and Max Dupain, as they shared their lives, studio and professional practice. It looks at their work made between 1934 and 1945, the period of their professional association; this was an exciting period of experimentation and growth in Australian photography, and Cotton and Dupain were at the centre of these developments.

Contemporary Australian video art

 

Bodies of all kinds moving in space. This phenomenon has been explored in a myriad of ways by artists ever since video art took off as an exciting new development in the 1960s. The select group of works displayed in Light moves: contemporary Australian video art continues to further the possibilities of the medium in poetic works that speak to their own personal interests and histories.
