Perimeter Talks | Mining the Archive

Perimeter is thrilled to continue its programming initiative Perimeter Talks in 2018. Taking place approximately once a month on a weekend afternoon, the series features lectures, panel discussions and more casual in-conversations with publishers, artists, curators, designers, writers and editors. The talks explore and address various themes and issues relating to contemporary photographic, art and design publishing – helping demystify, challenge and offer insight into publishing as a medium and a practice.

Our third talk of 2018, Mining the Archive will explore the collection of ephemera and vernacular photography within contemporary art practice. The talk will be presented as an informal conversation between Patrick Pound and Louis Porter.

Patrick Pound is a New Zealand-born Melbourne-based artist. His interest lies in the collection and ordering of visual material, including photographs, objects, books, paintings and ephemera. He has exhibited widely; recent exhibitions include The Great Exhibition, National Gallery of Victoria (2017) and Photography and Air, Stills Gallery (2016).

Louis Porter is a London-based photographer and member of ABC Collective. His practice often engages with typologies and collections of objects, detritus, scenarios or gestures from minor suburban conflicts or incidents, while also drawing on the digital archive provided by the internet.
