PIX is a photography quarterly and curatorial practice that has been investigating and engaging with broad and expansive fields of contemporary photographic practice with a different thematic focus for every issue. It contemplates photography in the present and the predicament of a generation influenced by the digital medium where it has come to be viewed as a means of everyday, in possessing the power to influence and even lead us astray.
The title is a premise for how photography, as an evolving medium, has revealed the world in tangible as well as incongruous terms, allowing viewers and practitioners to question the photographer’s subjectivity together with the camera’s ‘framing’ of time and space (its ability to reveal, censor, alter and re-orient). The quarterly seeks not only to present photography in temporal, spatial or historical terms, but also in personal, self-conscious and aesthetic ways.
‘Assimilations: Selected Images from PIX’ is a projection of select photographers from PIX featuring various theme-based interpretations arising from the Quarterly from the last 2 years.
