PHOTO is a major new international festival of photography that will activate Melbourne and sites across Regional Victoria with the most inspiring photography from Australia and around the world.
PHOTO International Festival of Photography is Australia’s largest and most prestigious photography event, presented by Photo Australia in collaboration with over 50 cultural, education, industry and government partners. Photo Australia supports universal access to diverse, progressive, meaningful discourse to make sense of ourselves and the world around us, through the promotion and commissioning of new photography and ideas.
Responding to a central theme, the biennial invites artists, curators, academics and audiences to interrogate the major issues of our time through a program of exhibitions in galleries and outdoor locations, alongside events and professional development programs. Dedicated to contemporary photography, the focus is on premiering new work alongside exclusive presentations by international artists. PHOTO 2024 will take place from 1 to 24 March 2024 in Melbourne and cities across regional Victoria, inviting audiences to imagine the world as it could be, and to explore how current actions and activisms are shaping future realities.
