In My Eyes Photography Exhibition

By swenson2 - 11 April 2012 5

The Australian National University (ANU) is holding a photography exhibition at The Theo Notaras Multicultural Centre that will showcase images that represent what Canberra means to its students. All photographic submissions that are in line with the theme will be accepted, with all photographs being shown on the exhibition website and on a slideshow during the opening of the exhibition. An expert committee selected 25 photographs to be printed and framed, initially displayed at the exhibition; the framed photograph will then be given to each respective artist.

Opening Night of the Exhibition will be on Wednesday the 2nd of May from 6:00pm until 9:00pm. The Exhibition will continue to run for two weeks until the 16th of May 2012.

I would just like to clarify, the money for this project didn’t come from ANU, it came through a grant that was received from the government to run this project as part of student enrichment and trying to get students to interact with the wider Canberra community.

Yep, I’m sure this exhibition cost tens of thousands of dollars. Obviously an institution like the ANU, which has courses in photography, shouldn’t bother with any type of exhibitions, shouldn’t ever attempt to expose their students work to a broader non-university audience.

So what’s this important stuff you vaguely allude to? And just what do any wetlands plans have to do with this? One would think that you simply view any story about the ANU as a soapbox opportunity…

Get off your high horse.

Point isn’t a single thing like this competition, it’s the cumulative effect. All these existential activities that put drains on staff time and institutional resources including finances, while at the same time they preach austerity and cutting fundamentals.

This specific thing had nothing to do with the photography courses. It was run by a photography enthusiast in the International Students Office. They devoted staff and resources to running workshops for a handful of people to set up the exhibition. Poorly run, doesn’t contribute to the University’s operations.

Don’t cry poor and cut my lecturers jobs the go spending thousands on an exhibition few will see.

They do many proper exhibitions to showcase student work already, and they’re actually commercially successful too as well as contributing to University objectives.

They’re cutting staff and courses, but when some low paid minion in admin set this up, suddenly they have money.

In fact ANU is so cash strapped they’re planning to blow over $700,000 on building wetlands along Sullies.

Kinda wish they focus on the important stuff.

Slightly confusing. I take it that the competition is now closed and the exhibition is available for viewing. This being the case then:
All photographic submissions that *were* in line with the theme *were* accepted, with all photographs being shown on the exhibition website and on a slideshow during the opening of the exhibition.
