Doug Spowart: Looking at Photographs in the Gallery
11am - 12pm Sat 18 Jan 2020

Dr Doug Spowart will speak to the photographs in the Museum Project exhibition and will discuss both the history of image-making and the contemporary development of photography to help to unpack the inspirational opportunities that may be derived from encountering The Museum Project exhibition.

Dr Doug Spowart has been extensively involved in the Australian photography scene as an artist, educator, curator, judge, commentator and social media producer for over 40 years.
Doug often works collaboratively with his partner Victoria Cooper. The work he undertakes either individually or with Victoria includes photobooks, cyanotypes, and camera obscura installations which have been widely exhibited and been finalists in many awards.

THE MUSEUM PROJECT

The Museum Project consists of a selection of photographs by American photographers generously donated to Lismore Regional Gallery in 2016. Established by artists and curators Robert von Sternberg and Darryl Curran, the project promotes the collection and exhibition of contemporary photography by art museums and universities internationally. The collection provides first-hand access to a multitude of photographic ideas and approaches, creating a resource for the public, including the next generation of photographers. Images span from the 1970s to the present day.
