Hear from experienced curator Sandy Edwards, as she discusses the relationship between curator, artist and gallery and how she, herself, has navigated these relationships. In this talk Sandy will explain the rationale for Head On at 107, which has been part of Head On for 3 years. It is a group show curated specifically for the 107 space. She will also talk about her philosophy as a Photography Mentor, Curator and Creative Producer. Through her experience at Stills Gallery and as a working photographer for 15 years before that she is well placed to explain the scenario for photographers in the art world in Sydney and beyond.


Sandy Edwards is the founder of ARTHERE an organisation that provides services (consultation, mentoring, venue securing and exhibition production) to photographers to have exhibitions in Sydney and throughout Australia. In 2012 she opened a new model of gallery in Redfern (Arthere Exhibition Space). This gallery held seventeen exhibitions in its one year (pop up) life.

Sandy was Co-director and Curator at Stills Gallery, Sydney's most established and prestigious photo gallery from 1991 until 2017 when it closed. In this role and as an independent curator she has curated multiple photographic exhibitions in Sydney. She has been Curator and Judge of Australian Life (the successful public art photography competition/exhibition in Hyde Park), Art & About, City Of Sydney since 2002. She has had an association with Head On Photo Festival, Australia’s premier photography festival. She curated public art competitions including Kings Cross Photography Competition/Prize (2011,2012). and Photographic Light boxes (with Linda Slutzkin) for the Arrivals Corridors Sydney Airport Art Program in 2000.
