Col­lec­tion+: Chris­tian Thomp­son In­dige­nous artist Chris­tian Thomp­son ex­plores the in­ter­sec­tion of art and fash­ion in this mul­ti­me­dia ex­hi­bi­tion, which mixes orig­i­nal art with key works from the Gene & Brian Sher­man col­lec­tion. Thomp­son was one of the first Abo­rig­i­nal stu­dents to at­tend Ox­ford Univer­sity on the Charles Perkins schol­ar­ship and is known for his ab­stract selfpor­trait pho­to­graphs, which ex­plore the ideas of in­dige­nous iconog­ra­phy, colo­nial­ism, his mixed her­itage and per­sonal iden­tity. A new sculp­tural work, All Rev­o­lu­tions are Led by the Young, is also fea­tured in the ex­hi­bi­tion. Sher­man Con­tem­po­rary Art Foundation, 16-20 Good­hope Street, Padding­ton. Wed-Sat, 11am-5pm. In­quiries: (02) 9331 1112 or on­line. Un­til De­cem­ber 12. The Al­chemists: Redis­cov­er­ing Pho­tog­ra­phy in the Age of the Jpeg In the era of the cam­era phone, any­one can take a quick snap — but few can man­u­ally cap­ture, process and de­velop an im­age from start to fin­ish. In this ex­hi­bi­tion, 25 artists from New Zealand, Ja­pan, Thai­land and Aus­tralia demon­strate the resur­gence in ex­per­i­men­tal darkroom pro­cess­ing that has melded the ana­log and dig­i­tal forms of pho­tog­ra­phy.

Sam Buck­ing­ham-Jones Aus­tralian Cen­tre for Pho­tog­ra­phy, 257 Ox­ford Street, Padding­ton. Opens Fri­day. In­quiries: (02) 9332 0555. Un­til De­cem­ber 6.
