Tracey Moffatt to Speak at the Art Gallery of New South Wales
Tracey Moffatt is arguably Australia’s most successful international artist.
SYDNEY.- Leading visual contemporary artist, Tracey Moffatt is arguably Australia’s most successful international artist. Now back in Australia after 15 years of working in New York, she is known for her film, photography and video works, which are held in leading art institutions around the world including 100 works in the Art Gallery of New South Wales’ collection.

Moffatt’s art is as likely to be inspired by popular culture and the idea of fame and celebrity as it is by art history. In her lecture at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, as part of current photographic exhibition Alfred Stieglitz: the Lake George years , Tracey explores the saga of two generous and brilliant American artists of the 20th-century who made stars of other people: photographer Alfred Stieglitz and the pop-star Prince.

Born in Brisbane in 1960, Moffatt studied visual communications at the Queensland College of Art. Since her first solo exhibition at the Australian Centre for Photography in Sydney in 1989, she has exhibited extensively in museums all over the world. Moffatt first gained significant critical acclaim when her short film Night Cries was selected for official competition at the 1990 Cannes Film Festival. Her first feature film, beDevil, was also selected for Cannes in 1993.

Tracey Moffatt was selected for the international section of the 1997 Venice Biennale and has also featured in the Biennales of Sydney, Sao Paulo (1998) and Gwangju (1995). A major exhibition at the Dia Center for the Arts in New York in 1997/98 consolidated her international reputation. In 2003 a large retrospective exhibition of Moffatt’s work was held at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney to record breaking attendances, and in 2004 at the Hasselblad Museum in Sweden. In 2006, she had her first retrospective exhibition in Italy. In 2007 her photographic series Scarred For Life was exhibited at the Guggenheim Museum and her video LOVE at the Brooklyn Museum in New York. As well in 2007 she was awarded the prestigious Infinity award for art photography selected by an International panel at the International Center of Photography in New York City. In early 2011 she plans to exhibit with Tyler Rollins Gallery and she is in the process of discussing a larger exhibition of her works with the Bronx museum both in New York.
