Drawing on Monash Gallery of Art’s collection of Australian photographs, Photographic Abstractions highlights the work of 33 Australian artists who use photography to achieve abstract effects. Ranging from modernist geometric abstraction and the psychedelic experiments and conceptual projects of the 1970s, through to recent explorations of pixelated pictorial space, this exhibition surveys a rich history of abstract Australian art photography.
Exhibition held in conjunction with the Queensland Festival of Photography 5
