Shimmer Photographic Biennale

Alchemical Traces – Curated by Sam Oster

The Shimmer Photographic Biennale is held every two years across the City of Onkaparinga to celebrate the art of photography and the culture of the camera.

This festival delivers a curated program of exhibitions, workshops, markets and artist talks inclusively supporting the creative talents of both emerging and established artists, as well as the local amateur photographic community. Shimmer began life through conversations between artists in Victoria and South Australia around the need for a photography festival in South Australia. The first festival was held in 2010 and has grown every year to the point where it is now considered an essential part of the state’s arts calendar.

This year, the fourth Shimmer Photographic Biennale runs from 2 September until 2 October 2016.
