The AGNSW is also hosting a symposium (9 April 2011) that will explore current ideas of place and culture by posing the question, "What do subject and object mean (or what can they mean) in photography in the 21st century?"

Speakers include:
Associate Professor David Stephenson, University of Tasmania School of Art
Dr Kyla McFarlane, Centre for Contemporary Photography
Dr Martyn Jolly, Australian National University
Dr Daniel Palmer, Monash University

The symposium is the first in a new annual series of symposia dedicated to photography, exploring new ways of thinking about the medium in the 21st century.

The exhibition includes work from eighteen artists such as Bill Henson, Jon Rhodes, Lynn Silverman, Simryn Gill, Ricky Maynard, David Stephenson, Rosemary Laing and Paul Ogier.
