On Saturday, I visited Ballarat the for the bi-annual photography festival called BIFB or Ballarat International Foto Biennale. I saw a small section of the show focusing on the core program at 3 venues.
- The Mining Exchange
- Art Gallery of Ballarat
- Post Office Gallery
These 3 galleries had a brad cross section of work from Australia and overseas, as well as historic and contemporary artists. My favourite was the John Cato. I also enjoyed the work of Ayala Gazit, in the Post Office Gallery.
I used the time spent there to prepare a list of questions for the students to answer when we visit the galleries later this week.
Four hours total.
