Photo-Expansions was a national exhibition of photographic works. The artists used the camera in ways which turned still photographs into moving images. The cinematic sequences and narrative content of the large-scale works encouraged the viewer to read between and beyond the frames. 

In this exhibition, the medium of photography was expanded to include a wall-sized grid, colour xerox frieze, woven photographic strips, hand-coloured sculptural objects and videotape.
