The Australian Centre for Photography

The Australian Centre for Photography

The Australian Centre for PhotographyThe Australian Centre for Photography is Australia’s national organisation dedicated to the practice and understanding of photography and new media.

The Centre in Paddington hosts regular exhibitions, education and community programs, designed to engage the community in a conversation about the role of photography and images in our culture.

The Centre is one of the longest running contemporary art spaces in Australia and it moved into its current premises on bustling Oxford Street in Paddington in 1981.

The images below sample the Centre’s most recent exhibition, titled ‘The Alchemists: Rediscovering Photography in the Age of the Jpeg‘. The exhibition explored ‘new hybrid practices to home in on the nexus between analogue and digital photography’.

The Centre is a fascinating and educational contemporary art space which should be on your list of must visit art venues in the Paddington area.

The Centre is practically across the road from Juniper Hall, the home of the Moran Prizes, and these two venues offer a great selection of contemporary art pieces within a short stroll of each other.
