Building collections: Judy Annear in conversation with Geoffrey Batchen.

Drawing on their extensive knowledge of photo media, visiting curator and writer Judy Annear joins photo-historian and avid collector of photographs, Geoffrey Batchen to consider the history of collecting photography in Australia and New Zealand.

Together they will unpack the values at the heart of both public and private collections, using our current exhibition 'Still looking: Peter McLeavey and the last photograph' as a case study of a significant collection amassed entirely through private means.

Judy Annear is an independent writer and curator based in Sydney, Australia. She is an adjunct lecturer at University of New South Wales’ Art & Design faculty and has held many curatorial roles, including Senior Curator Photographs at the Art Gallery of New South Wales (1995-2016).

She recently edited the October 2018 issue of Art Monthly Australasia, which includes an essay on the McLeavey collection. Her last book was The photograph and Australia (2015). She has particular expertise in modern and contemporary art including how and why it is collected.

Geoffrey Batchen is Professor in Art History at Victoria University of Wellington and co-curator of Still looking, currently on view at Adam Art Gallery Te Pātaka Toi.
