Photography explores the modern family and the modern Alice in Wonderland.
The Australian Centre for Photography will be hosting two thought-provoking, colourful and daring exhibitions this autumn. On display from Saturday, March 1, until Sunday, May 18, S/M Wonderland and We Are Family are two free exhibitions you won't want to miss from the Oxford Street gallery.
Curated by C. Moore Hardy, We Are Family is a series by emerging and established female artists Michele Aboud, Deborah Kelly, Annie Magdalena, r e a, The Twilight Girls and Waded. The works take a varied look at what family means today, challenging our understanding of the GLBTQI community and so-called traditional values. Sounds like somebody should send Cory Bernardi an invite, eh?
Loosely based on Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland, Adam Geczy's S/M Wonderland is a video and photography installation that follows a curious girl through an alternative world. Inspired by the developments in music videos, fashion films and sex and gore cinema, Geczy challenges the perception that contemporary fine art is separate from other streams of pop culture.
