Autumn Season 2014
1 March – 18 May 2014
The Australian Centre for Photography’s (ACP) Autumn Season 2014 presents S/M Wonderland a new installation from artist Adam Geczy, and We Are Family, a group show curated by documentary photographer, and gay and lesbian rights advocate C. Moore Hardy. These thought-provoking, colourful and daring photographic exhibitions will be sure to spark your imagination.
S/M Wonderland explores the crossroads of art, fashion, popular culture in its encounter with sex, transgression and the uncanny. Loosely based on Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll, Adam Geczy uses photography and film to challenge the perception that contemporary fine art can see itself as separate from the many complex streams of popular culture.
We Are Family showcases the photographic and installation works of emerging and established female artists Michele Aboud, Deborah Kelly, Annie Magdalena Laerkesen, r e a, The Twilight Girls and Waded. Evolving from guest curator C. Moore Hardy’s work documenting the gay and lesbian community in the 1990s, the exhibition looks at the many forms family takes in today’s society, whether pre-existing, chosen or created. We Are Family presents the artists’ interpretations of family within gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer (GLBTIQ) contexts.
