HIY 2009

A little farmyard/rural triptych for "HIY 2009". Do I have a wicked sense of humour or what?

Now in it's second year, "HIY" (or "hang it yourself") is a street-wise exhibition concept at Photoaccess in Manuka. Basically, photographers are given free reign to stick up to five images anywhere on the gallery's walls, with only two rules: images must be unframed and no wider than 42 centimetres.

The result is naturally going to be chaotic, a spaghetti-like explosion of styles, subjects and skills. I'm told 130 images will go on display, which, given the maximum width rule, makes about five and a half kilometres of art!

With so many photographers on show, the opening tomorrow is going to be mad ... there's nothing like the party atmosphere of a group exhibition. So if you're in Canberra, please feel free to join us for a glass of bubbles.

Where: Photoaccess (cnr Manuka Circle and New South Wales Crescent)
When: 2:30pm, Saturday 5 September
"HIY 2009" runs until 20 September.
