Viewing The Josephine Ulrick and Win Schubert Photography Award

9 May

Last Sunday some of the year 10 Art students viewed the Gold Coast Art Gallery’s annual Photographic Exhibition, The Josephine Ulrick and Win Schubert Photography Award.

This exhibition is considered one of the most important annual surveys of contemporary Australian photographic practice where established photographers are showcased alongside emerging. The selection of photographs gave us a lot to discuss, in particular how much the curated works pushed the boundaries of traditional approaches; we rather liked Chris Bowes darkroom print created using his own sweat on silver gelatine paper. Minimalism style was also prevalent, we questioned why the judges decided to include so many artworks which relied on their captions to explain concepts. Nevertheless, it was a fantastic opportunity for us to review some photographs right before we start our own photographic folios.

On a different note, in Gallery 2 Everyday Celebrity: Extra Ordinary Things from the Collection kept us enthralled. We loved the selection of kitsch and quirky works in a range of media. Well worth the visit.
