Event Description

Ballarat International Foto Biennale provides the opportunity to explore the worlds best in professional and amateur photography. A majority of exhibitions are FREE and are located in the central area of this historic (by Australian standards) city.

Enjoy a trip to Ballarat for the Ballarat International Foto Biennale, a multi faceted event running from 24th August to 20th October 2019. The printed guide runs to over 90 pages outlining a wide range of visual arts installations. Recommended is the display of Soldiers (from Israel), a highly stylised and provocative set of photographs that focus on the intermediary moments between privacy and intimacy within the rigid framework of military life. Another exhibition is the Four More Celebrations of The Human Form which contains work by four local photographers, including past Nomads member, Ross Spirou. Ross will host the group at the venue in Armstrong St.

The departure time is set for arrival just prior to 11am, as past experience indicates this will allow extra time to inspect more exhibitions. For those travelling by train, a personal printed guide will be distributed for your perusal en route so that you can make a selection of “must see” exhibitions.
