and Wilbow Gallery
Come in from the heat and enjoy MGA's summer exhibition:
Photography lovers and those interested in global cross-cultural connections will love Hijacked 2: Australia/Germany, an exciting and provocative survey of new photography from Australia and Germany.
Perth-based curator Mark McPherson has collaborated with German curator Ute Noll and book publisher Markus Schaden to create Hijacked 2. The works of German and Australian photographers are juxtaposed to stimulate conversation and to suggest connections - framing a unique space marked both by current photographic practice and contemporary culture.
Part of the BERLIN DAYZ festival. Presented by MGA; Goethe Institut - Australien; Big City Press and Australian Centre for Photography, Sydney
MGA commissioned three short films to coincide with Hijacked 2. Each film follows two artists in the book and exhibition, one Australian and one German. All three films can be seen on our vimeo channel, or select the 'watch this' tab to see one right now.
Directed and edited by Jack Pam, Music by Ned Beckley. The films are also showing on the Big Screen at Federation Square, Melbourne for the duration of the exhibition.
