Hijacked III: Contemporary Photography from Australia and the United Kingdom

About

Take a trip into the fantastic and foreboding worlds of artists from opposite sides of the globe in this major survey exhibition and publication featuring the best photographic talents from Australia and the UK.

From oblique takes on portraiture and collage to snapshots of society at its best and worst, these far reaching photographic practices question what it means to look at, capture or construct images in the 21st century. Known for halting the status quo, arresting the scene and exploding a new perspective on the practices of contemporary photography, this third edition of the biennale Hijacked series explores the world through the eyes and works of 35 international photographers from or within the UK and Australia.

Also featuring a series of specially commissioned films about participating photographers and writers, produced by Troika.

Curated by Louise Clements, QUAD and FORMAT International Photography Festival (UK), Mark McPherson, Big City Press (AUS), and Leigh Robb, PICA (AUS).

The exhibition will show simultaneously in QUAD and at PICA in Perth, Australia.
Events will include live link ups for workshops and artists talks.
