March
Exploring Contemporary Australian Photography
Friday, March 22 at 11:00AM
Join us in March for a guided tour of MOPA’s new invitational exhibition featuring the work of 13 contemporary photographers from Australia. Each artist, nominated by a leading voice in Australian photography, was selected for their unique approach to photography and the subject matter they engage through their work. We’ll explore the issues they picture, discuss how photography has changed over time, and learn more about how contemporary artists are pushing the boundaries of the medium through their work.
In partnership with OASIS San Diego, hosted at the Museum of Photographic Arts in Balboa Park.
