Our second invited speaker in the 2016 PSM Guest Lecture Series is Cherine Fahd.

Cherine Fahd (1974) is a Sydney based artist and academic. Employing photography in playful explorations of the body and concealment, her photographic work draws on photography’s connections to performance, sculpture and painting. She completed a PhD at Monash University, Melbourne in 2015 and her doctoral research titled Hiding from the Camera for the Camera examined the paradox of both appearing for the camera whilst being hidden. Fahd’s extensive exhibition history has seen her work shown in major public institutions in Australia and internationally, most recently Photo LA, Los Angeles (2014), Crossing Paths with Vivian Maier, Centre for Contemporary Photography, Melbourne (2014), Australian Art, NGA Contemporary, National Gallery of Australia, Canberra (2015). Her work is represented in significant public collections and she has been the recipient of numerous grants,  awards and residencies such as the NSW Women & Arts Fellowship from Arts NSW (2005), Josephine Ulrick and Win Schubert Foundation for the Arts Photography Award (2004), National Photography Prize (2010) and the Moya Dyring Studio from the Art Gallery of New South Wales (2003). She is currently Lecturer in Photomedia at The University of Sydney, Sydney College of the Arts.

This lecture, like all in the series, is free and open to the public. It takes place this Monday the 4th of April, 6.15-8pm. The location is UTS Building 6, 702-720 Harris street, level 3, room 22.
