Join us in the gorgeous surrounds of the Ballarat Mining Exchange for the official opening of the 2017 Ballarat International Foto Biennale and of Tell — an exhibition of 17 contemporary Indigenous photographers, curated by Jessica Clark. Open to the public, the Vernissage will give you an opportunity to experience a taste of what is to come over 30 days and five weekends of photographic art, while enjoying delicious paella by local chef Peter Ford and sparkling wine, beer and spirits from the cash bar.

This year’s Ballarat International Foto Biennale includes over 100 exhibitions from artists local and international, and promises to be one of the most exciting yet.

The Ballarat Mining Exchange is the perfect venue for such an event, with a deep and rich past — it was built in the 1880s and used for trading of shares during the Gold Rush, and continues to be regarded as one of Ballarat’s prime historical sites today.

Come and celebrate the 2017 Ballarat International Foto Biennale with us.
