Women in Photography: Art and Politics (Stage 5, Stage 6, TAFE Students)

  13-Oct-2023      02:00PM
Live Event

Across three interactive sessions this series (13, 20 and 27 October) will take a deep dive into six leading Australian women photographers. Join one or two online sessions or the entire series!



Session 1 will explore the topic of art and politics looking at the work of photographers Brenda L Croft and Carol Jerrems. In this session students will engage with ideas including the relationship between artist and sitter, materiality and technique and the role of photography in social issues.

Together with facilitators from the National Portrait Gallery and the National Gallery of Australia, students will participate in discussions and interactive activities to gain an understanding of each artist’s practice and the context in which they made these works.
