2017 Exhibitions

Below is shown a visual listing of exhibitions held in 2017. We are currently curating our 2018 exhibitions and as these become confirmed we will add them to the 2018 Exhibitions page.

The Xposure Photo Fair was implemented in 2017 to allow art for sale during the festival and in 2018 the Photo Fair will be supplemented by full-time gallery spaces to display exhibitions of photography from the previously participating festival photographers.

We also support emerging photographers by providing the opportunity to display their photography, during the festival, on custom Exhibition Display Panels
