Join us for a spotlight talk with 24th Biennale of Sydney artist, Dylan Mooney, who will appear by his work on display in the Boiler House at White Bay Power Station to discuss the themes and content of the work, his practice and the process of realising the project.


Dylan Mooney is a proud Yuwi, Torres Strait and South Sea Islander man from Mackay (North Queensland), working across painting, printmaking, digital illustration and drawing. Influenced by history, culture and family, Mooney responds to community stories, current affairs and social media. Legally blind, the digital medium’s backlit display allows Mooney to produce a high-impact illustrative style with bright, saturated colour that reflects his experiences with keen political energy and insight. Interested in the ways in which we can reframe the conversation around some of the voices that have been left out, the artist has made an important body of work that embodies optimism and a shift in representation of queer love among people of colour.
