Up Close – Heide Museum of Modern Art
Date: 31 July 31 October 2010
Location: Heide III: Central Galleries
Curator/s: Natalie King (guest curator)
Up Close traces the significant legacy of Australian photographer Carol Jerrems (1949–1980) and situates her work alongside that of other photo-based artists – Larry Clark and Nan Goldin from New York and William Yang from Sydney. Sharing an interest in subcultural groups and individuals on the margins of society, each artist candidly portrays bohemian life of the 1970s and early 1980s. Their intimate depictions of people, places and events provide glimpses of semi-private worlds, amplifying the emotional tenor of the times.
