Lithuanian and Australian Photography
6–8pm Thursday 24 September 2009
On Thursday 24 September the ACP will be hosting the launch of Customs Ignored: Lithuanian and Australian Photography, a book from Lithuanian photographer, curator and publisher Mindaugas Kavaliauskas. The book showcases the work of nine Australian and nine Lithuanian photographers who seek to document, discuss, and escape the alienation of afluent Western society.
Mindaugas is Director of the Kaunas Photo festival, where he has exhibited the work of a number of Australian Artists in the recent past. For all who attend, this will be a great chance to meet Mindaugas and find out about possible opportunities for Australian photographers in Europe. The launch will start from 6pm in the ACP lounge and we welcome everyone to join us for a glass of champagne to celebrate.
