Untitled 1985/86/2009 will be on view at CCP Friday 2 and Saturday 3 October 2009, 11am—6pm.
Centre for Contemporary Photography (CCP) is the pre-eminent Victorian organisation for the exhibition of contemporary photo-based arts, providing a context for the enjoyment, education, understanding and appraisal of contemporary practice.
CCP is delighted to be offering this major photograph for the 2009 CCP Limited Edition Print, generously provided by eminent Australian artist, Bill Henson.
This follows the highly successful CCP Limited Edition Print 2008, Anne Zahalka's The Bathers 1989.
Untitled 1985/86/2009, is a limited edition of 12. In this series Bill Henson shifted decisively to colour photography. These images depict the highly improbable juxtaposition of Australian suburbia with ancient Egyptian ruins, punctuated by enigmatic portraits of teenagers and moody cloudscapes.
Bill Henson is a generous and frequent supporter of not-for-profit arts organisations and other non-art related charitable causes across Australia. He has donated work to CCP fundraising appeals on many occasions. CCP is most grateful for his support in 2009.
The first prints are available at the CCP fundraiser price of $9,900 unframed (does not attract GST) and $11,000 which will be framed by Chapman & Bailey, with fundraiser discount (inc GST on frame). NB. credit card purchases attract a 1.5% merchant fee. Prints are signed and a numbered certificate will be included
Eighty percent of funds raised through the CCP Limited Edition Print enable CCP to support the practice and presentation of contemporary photography through provision of exhibitions, education, public programs and publishing; the artist will retain twenty percent. CCP also welcomes tax deductible donations.
Bill Henson is represented by Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery, Sydney, Tolarno Galleries, Melbourne and Robert Miller Gallery, New York.
