PHOTO 2024 International Festival of Photography announces a program of 100 free exhibitions across Melbourne & Victoria investigating the theme The Future Is Shaped by Those Who Can See It.

Overview

The biennale features an art trail of 100 free exhibitions and outdoor art installations to explore across seven Festival Precincts in Melbourne, as well as five cities in regional Victoria – presented in partnership with over 50 museums and galleries including ACMI, State Library Victoria, Museum of Australian Photography, and the Centre for Contemporary Photography. Tours, talks, film screenings and workshops concentrate on four focus weekends, from Opening Weekend celebrations and Regional Weekend excursions, to discussions on the future of photography at the Ideas Weekend, and a world of photography books to browse and buy at the Photobook Weekend.

Addressing the theme ‘The Future Is Shaped by Those Who Can See It’, PHOTO 2024’s expansive program invites audiences to discover the possible and parallel futures that lie ahead, and how current actions are shaping future realities – from AI-generated images and surveillance evasion to climate futures and animal espionage.

PHOTO 2024 features over 150 contemporary photographers and artists from Australia and around the world, including exclusive presentations by Ryan McGinley (USA), Omar Victor Diop (Senegal), Carmen Winant (USA), Edward Burtynsky (Canada), Mous Lamrabat (Morocco), Cao Fei (China), and CAMP (India). PHOTO 2024 also celebrates three Icons of Photography: Nan Goldin (USA), Malick Sidibé (Mali) and Rennie Ellis (Australia).
