IMSS | Presents Artist, Kate Disher-Quill | 5 March 2019

Posted by Social Media on 21/02/2019 11:16:25 AM

Photography Studies College is proud to present Kate Disher-Quill for our first Image Makers Seminar of 2019. Kate’s talk will coincide with the launch of her latest photography book Earshot, and accompanying zine Fish on the Floor.

Both publications offer a rare, visceral insight into the world of deafness and hearing loss. After winning the POOL grant in 2014 Kate developed this work for a photographic exhibition, which was shown in Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra. Earshot is the latest extension of this project and uses photography, illustration and intimate stories from over 35 subjects to reveal the diversity and complexity of deafness. Diagnosed with hearing loss at 3 years of age and fitted with hearing aids when she was 10, Kate’s driving force behind this project was to create something that would have helped her accept her deafness much earlier in life.

This special event will be held in the PSC Studio, Ground entrance next to 65 City Road. Wheelchair access is available from the rear of our building in Fawkner Street. Our building is clearly marked. Call 9682 3191.

An Auslan interpreter will be used in conjunction with this talk.

PSC Tutor, Hoda Afshar on 'Contemporary Art in the Political Present'

Posted by Social Media on 10/02/2019 4:16:00 PM

Coming up at ACCA on the 16th of February 4:00-6:30pm - a panel discussion on the theme of art in a global political climate including PSC's Lecturer, Hoda Afshar.

This event is hosted by Vault Magazine



'Panellists: Angela Tiatia (Artist), Hoda Afshar (Artist), Dr Danny Butt (Associate Director (Research) at the Victorian College of the Arts, University of Melbourne)

 The art world has always both reinforced and challenged questions of power. Through history, privilege and access have played as big a role as artistic talent when it comes to elevating artists and deciding which legacies to preserve. This panel addresses the growing conversation about representation and visibility in the art world. It also explores the impact of our polarised political climate on the process of making and showing art — as well as the pressures and possibilities for artists who’ve had to fight for their work to be seen. Ultimately, it asks: how important is for art to respond to this political moment? And how can we make the art world an equitable place for everyone?'

Ivan Kemp is rocking it in his first solo exhibition - 'Cutting the Chord'

Posted by Social Media on 08/02/2019 5:15:00 PM

PSC Alumni Ivan Kemp is about to launch his first solo exhibition. Ivan transitioned his career from IT Software to photography. It was his love of portrait photography and music that led him to this exciting project.
We caught up with Ivan to ask about his exhibition, his journey and to share some of his valuable music photography tips!


'Cutting the Chord - The Exhibition is an intimate exploration of Melbourne’s vibrant, dynamic, live music scene and is part of the Midsumma Festival. The images were taken over the last 18 months and capture moments in performance that cross genre, gender and venues.

Normally in an exhibition, photographs have the same colour palette to create uniformity. The images in this exhibition are anything but uniform. They are created to reflect the character of the performer, gig and the venue. Hence, black and white images and different colour palettes are used to highlight the diversity. Some of the musicians are well known but others are just starting their musical careers. All of them play to please their audience and to create their own style of music.' 

How did the opportunity to exhibit at the Midsumma Festival come about?

Last year, through a contact I was asked if I wanted the opportunity to photograph publicity shots for the production of Antigone X which was part of the Midsumma Festival 2018. I photographed the cast using the studios at PSC. This was followed up by photographs of the dress rehearsal. This was a great experience and introduced me to other opportunities since that event.

This year I took publicity photographs for Aidan Rolfe (singer / songwriter and guitarist) who has a show Kado Warehouse in Cremorne. After discussions with Aidan and Matthew Grant (owner of Kado Warehouse) we decided to combine a photography exhibition built around live musical performance around Melbourne with Aidan’s performance.
