Through exhibitions, education and publishing, Centre for Contemporary Photography (CCP) places contemporary Australian photography and video in conversation with significant historical and international practice, expanding the context for current Australian lens-based arts. We support artists by providing educational experiences for aspiring creators, exhibition opportunities for early-career artists, commissioned research projects for mid-career artists, and opportunities for established artists to experiment and take risks. CCP has played a pivotal role in the development of lens-based arts and public engagement with photography. In 2005, CCP relocated to purpose designed premises by Sean Godsell Architects. Our exhibition program is presented across five gallery spaces, including the Night Projection Window viewed from the street after dark.
Established in 1986 by the photographic community as a not-for-profit exhibition and resource centre, CCP has played a pivotal role in the support of photo-based arts and public engagement with photography. In 2005 CCP relocated to purpose designed premises by Sean Godsell Architects.
CCP’s exhibition program is presented across five exhibition spaces, including the Night Projection Window viewed from George and Kerr Streets after dark, and features a diverse range of photo-based arts from emerging to established artists. The program includes individual, group and curated exhibitions representing the very best of local, interstate and international photography. CCP welcomes proposals from emerging and established artists, as well as curators and writers. Information regarding exhibition proposals can be found at here. Admission to CCP is free. CCP is fully accessible for wheelchairs and prams.
