Exchange Value

How far can documentary photography take our imagination? The 11 Australian artists in ‘Exchange value’ and international practices explore not only the relationship between artist and subject but also the potential of image making itself. Traversing a wide range of encounters the works offer a window into sub-cultures, such as the club world of 1990s Brisbane, homelessness and marginalisation. Artists include Micky Allan, Atong Atem, Bieke Depoorter, Kim Guthrie, Leah King-Smith, Kallena Kucers, Patrick Pound, Mick Richards, Raphaela Rosella, Simon Terrill and Gavin Watson.
