on Photographic Collage
Saturday 10 November 2018, 10am–4pm
This workshop coincides with the exhibition John Stezaker: Lost World
In this workshop, Melbourne based artist Zoë Croggon will discuss the conceptual and historical foundations of collage while providing in-depth insight into her own precise and highly formal practice. This intimate workshop will focus on the elasticity of the medium of collage, its tentative status as a “fine art”, as well as its potential to challenge form and definition. This workshop will also involve an intensive portfolio review of each participant’s individual work.
Zoë Croggon has a Bachelor of Fine Art from the Victorian College of the Arts with First Class Honours. She has held solo exhibitions at the National Gallery of Victoria, Gertrude Contemporary, Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery, Perth Centre for Photography, Daine Singer and the Melbourne Art Fair and has participated in group exhibitions at institutions including Heide Museum of Modern Art, Centre for Contemporary Photography, Monash University Museum of Art, Samstag Museum of Art, and Ian Potter Museum of Art. Croggon is the recipient of an Art Gallery of New South Wales Studio Scholarship at the Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris (2018), ARTAND Australia / Credit Suisse Private Banking Contemporary Art Award (2014), the Asia-Pacific Photobook Prize (2015) and the ACACIA Art Award (2010). Her work is held in collections including the National Gallery of Australia, Art Gallery of New South Wales, National Gallery of Victoria, MUMA, Gippsland Art Gallery and Artbank.
