Tracey Moffatt (Australia)

Museum of Contemporary Art

Tracey Moffatt is one of Australia’s leading contemporary artists. Born in 1960 in Brisbane, Moffatt began her career in the late 1980s – her first solo exhibition was at the Australian Centre of Photography in 1989 – and has since established herself as a pioneering voice in contemporary art, nationally and internationally. Over the past three decades Moffatt has worked predominantly in photography and film and is known as a powerful visual storyteller. The narrative is often implied and self-referential, exploring her own childhood memories, and the broader issues of race, gender, sexuality and identity. 

Presentation at the 24th Biennale of Sydney was made possible with generous support from a grant from Open Society Foundations.
