PM 2017 Judge #1

Less than one week to go, and we’d like to introduce you to our first judge, the wonderful Miriam Arbus. Miriam was on the judging panel last year too, this is what she had to say…”Photomarathon was such an exciting event to be a part of. I love the open-call nature and the way it asks photographers to really get out there in the city, walk around, and really look at our environment. I think events like this that welcome all to participate are so important for our community.”

With dedicated interest in contemporary localised and community based art practices, Miriam works as the Director and Curator of Fitzroy’s Brunswick Street Gallery. She is originally from Canada where she focused academic studies in Art History, Contemporary Theory and Curatorship at Concordia University and the University of Toronto. After completing her Masters degree she relocated to Melbourne. Her areas of focus are pertinent to new media and post-digital practices as well as participatory art.

We’re thrilled she’s taking up the PhotoMarathon judging once again!
