The 2019 Loud and Luminous Exhibition
Time & Location
About the Event
The Loud and Luminous mission is to recognise and celebrate the contribution of contemporary women in the photographic arts in Australia. We believe this project is unique and important in recognising the extensive cultural contribution women photographic artists and photographers have made in this country. This project is designed to empower the girls and women of today and tomorrow to chase in their dreams. This will always be a timely project and one that hopes will help educate and inspire many women of all ages.
In 2018 our wonderfully supportive sponsors included: Fujifilm Australia, Kayell Australia, Momento Pro, Victorian Women’s Trust, Creative Women’s Circle and Damian Caniglia Photography and Video. In 2019 we have again secured Fujifilm Australia, Kayell Australia, Momento Pro and Damian Caniglia Photography/Video.
The inaugural 2018 exhibition featured 56 emerging, mid career and influential Australian women photographic artists by photographing a universal women's symbol in their finished work. The brief was completely open to their interpretation, referencing the universal women's symbol somehow in their two dimensional photographic work.
In 2019 we are exhibiting 100 diverse female and female identifying artists as part of the Head On Festival in Sydney.
The launch will still be on International Women’s Day Friday the 8th of March. It will take place in Canberra at the ANU School of Art and design. The launch will include an all day symposium. Please register for your tickets early!
