BIFB presents GradFoto 2020 exhibition

The Ballarat International Foto Biennale’s inaugural GradFoto 2020 exhibition is now available to view online, showcasing 20 graduating artists from 13 universities.

The GradFoto 2020 award was created to highlight photographic work by up and coming artists from selected institutions. Participating institutions include Charles Sturt University, Deakin University, Federation University Australia, LCI Melbourne, Monash University, National Art School, Photography Studies College, RMIT University, Swinburne University of Technology, University of New South Wales, University of Tasmania, University of Wollongong and VCA University of Melbourne.

Winner of the 2020 prize of AU$500 was Shuran Yang from RMIT University for her series Hedgehog Family, which relates to the traditional Chinese concept of filial piety, where instead of letting children have their career away from home, parents tend to want more of their children’s company at home in adulthood.
