Showing at the Basil Sellers Exhibition Centre, Lightyears was an exhibition that examined the important position of photography in Australian contemporary art. This exhibition assembled twelve of Australia’s leading contemporary photographers who have each made significant contributions to the direction of global photo-media.
Lightyears included iconic photographs by industry leading photographic artists. Each work on view was displayed using the latest lightbox technology. The images we saw in Lightyears were selected by the artists as ones which best highlight the colour, detail, and visual ambition capable with this new and luminous medium.
Exhibition highlights included new lightbox photographs from Narelle Autio, Trent Parke, Tamara Dean, Petrina Hicks, Nici Cumpston and Gerwyn Davies. Joseph McGlennon, Polixeni Papapetrou, Luke Shadbolt, Derek Henderson and Fabian Muir will also exhibited.
