The Great Idea Photography Exhibition

Macquarie University Art Gallery
The Chancellery, Bldg E11A, 19 Eastern Rd, Macquarie University

Nine contemporary Australian photographers of Hellenic descent provide sweeping, often discordant, diverse visions of those aspects of their worlds that are important to them. Yet common to all is the need to know and understand both themselves and their context of looking. And herein lies the group’s ‘great idea’, the freedom to see, interpret, converse, argue and visually articulate self and place, unbound by any discourse of nationalism – either Greek or Australian. The nine photographers are: Effy Alexakis, Emmanuel Angelicas, Yannis Dramitinos, Phillip George, Arthur Georgeson, Elizabeth Gertsakis, Polixeni Papapetrou, Tom Psomotragos and Vasili Vasileiadis. Curated by Leonard Janiszewski. 

The event has been postponed.
