@photofestivalau has just launched their third PHOTO LIVE, a series of live streamed conversations about the social and cultural role photography plays in our lives, addressing a range of issues from identity and belonging to human rights and social justice.

Join Monash Senior Lecturer Peta Clancy in conversation with Clare Needham (Curator, Bendigo Art Gallery) about the exhibition The Burning World.

Peta Clancy is a descendent of the Bangerang people from south-eastern Australia. Through her photographic work she explores hidden histories of colonisation, events which threatened the survival of my ancestors. Part of PHOTO 2021's expanded program, The Burning World exhibition brings together major works by four leading Australian artists Hoda Afshar, Peta Clancy, Rosemary Laing and Michael Cook that draw upon colonial histories, fact and fiction, to consider the landscape as an amorphous political site.

Peta Clancy is currently exhibiting in ‘The Burning World’ exhibition at Bendigo Gallery, on until 8 November 2020. This exhibition brings together major works by four leading Australian artists Hoda Afshar, Peta Clancy, Rosemary Laing and Michael Cook. It is part of the PHOTO 2021 expanded program.
