Biography

Ali McCann

Ali McCann’s studio-based practice explores the illusionary and nostalgic tendencies of the photographic image. Her work also examines the extended life of objects - pedagogical, decorative and sentimental - when displaced in alternate temporal, spatial and psychological realms. McCann has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions including, most recently: Slippery Images, National Gallery of Victoria (2023), States of Disruption, Centre For Contemporary Photography (2022) and Tree Log Paper Book, Bus Projects (2022). She was recently a finalist in the Josephine Ulrick and Win Schubert Photography Award 2022 at HOTA, Surfers Paradise, QLD and the National Photography Prize 2020 at MAMA Murray Art Museum, Albury, NSW. She completed a Master of Contemporary Art at the Victorian College of the Arts, University of Melbourne, in 2017. She also holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography from the Victorian College of the Arts, University of Melbourne and a Graduate Diploma of Education, University of Melbourne.
