“Full Spectrum” is a touring exhibition funded and supported by Country Arts SA in partnership with NETS Australia. This exciting display comprises works by three photographers: Gregory Ackland, Joe Felber and Will Nolan, who form the core of the Photography Department at the Adelaide College of the Arts.
They believe that rigorous investigation of conceptual photography and continued practicing of technique are vital to the development of new work. The exhibition offers a challenging and thoughtful view of photography today, presenting the image as both conceptual and cultural object: deconstructed, layered, distilled, practiced and valued.
The artworks presented serve as reflections of each photographer’s concerns, explorations and pursuits of technical craft. The artists have asked: what does the image mean? What is implied? Does the image remain inert within its frame and/or its file type? What form can the image take? What role does the viewer play in the photograph?
