Biography

Patrick Pound is an artist and academic. His 2017 survey exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria was visited by over 200,000 people. A major monograph was published to accompany Patrick Pound: The Great Exhibition. He has worked with many Public Gallery and Museum collections, alongside his ever-growing collections-based artworks, rethinking how things might be found and made to hold ideas. He has held over 50 solo exhibitions and been in over 80 curated exhibitions in New Zealand, Australia, France, England, Korea, Italy, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, etc.  His work is held in many public galleries including the National Gallery, Canberra, the Art Gallery of New South Wales, the National Gallery of Victoria, Te Papa Tongarewa, Wellington, NZ, Auckland Art Gallery, NZ, Christchurch Art Gallery, NZ. 

Pound's research is increasingly focused on public gallery and museum exhibitions that rethink collection and display models and unpack how things might be found to hold and express ideas differently in gallery and museum contexts. The research and creative practice entail positioning the collection as a medium. This research also investigates new methods of interconnecting collection works using internet search methods as an organizing system for finding, ordering and displaying collections as artworks. The technique of the intersecting matrix hang, and the performative search engine generating internet artworks is a new development in curatorial methodology and thinking, which asks questions of our understandings of sorting and storing and searching information in the internet age, pressing us to rethink museum models of collection and display. 

Pound's work with photography has been included in the three key surveys of Australian Photography this century: The Art of the Photograph, 2013, Art Gallery of New South Wales, curated by Judy Annear; Episodes, Dong Gang Photography Museum, Korea, curated by Natalie King and Yong Mi Park; Perfect for Every Occasion: Australian Photography Today, Heide Museum of Art, 2007, curated by Zara Stanhope.

Pound's traditional research includes Photography and transmission, Photography and the archive in the digital era, The invention and history of documentary style photography, Walker Evans, Henry James and photography, A.L. Coburn and documentary Pictorialism.
