Exposed: Queensland Centre of Photography
The Queensland Centre for Photography (QCP) was an artist-run photographic institution that operated from 2004 until 2014, showcasing local, national and international photo-media artists in Brisbane. On 17 April 2014, the QCP Board decided unanimously to close its Brisbane exhibition venue, following the withdrawal of core government funding.Recently, 112 photographs held in the QCP collection have been loaned to Rockhampton Art Gallery’s nationally significant collection. As it stands, Rockhampton Art Gallery is home to a modest collection of photo-media art, including works by: Polixeni Papapetrou, Petrina Hicks, John Gollings, Patricia Piccinini, Tracey Moffatt and Michael Cook. These QCP works include photographs by Peter Annand, Svetlana Bailey, Di Ball, Kate Bernauer, Camilla Birkland, Jeremy Blincoe, Magdalena Bors, Eric Bridgeman, Renata Buziak, Keith Carey, Ray Cook, Nahan Corum and Gordon Craig.
This showcase of photographs is diverse in nature and forms a well-rounded snapshot of 10 years of Queensland contemporary photography.
