Facilitated by CCP’s curator Jack Willet and Melbourne/Naarm-based photographer Jo Duck, the event will survey the contemporary landscape of fashion photography. The exhibition will contextualise a group of unique yet quintessential collections of creative voices within the broader industry.

Six Fashion Photographers rests somewhere between an art fair and a contemporary exhibition with an amalgamation of experimental mediums. Highlighting the intersection of styling, concept and format—the exhibition offers a unique platform for all photographers and their audiences to engage, respond and contribute creatively to conversations surrounding the union of fashion and art, as communicated through the photographic lens.

On the evening, the CCP will also present the new iconic works of The Huxleys’ Places of Worship, offering an insight into the euphoric world of the Melbourne/Naarm based performance artists. The series explores the fading magic of supernatural worlds that artists Will and Garrett Huxley cast themselves in. In the exhibition, the Huxley’s navigate themes surrounding “existing on the fringes of places, and margins of society,” according to the CCP.
