Afterglow: performance art and photography

28 January 2011 to 3 April 2011

Afterglow examines the different ways that performance artists have used photography to document their temporal activities and extend the audience for their performances beyond the event itself. Drawing largely on MGA's own collection of performance photography, Afterglow looks at the central role played by photography in the work of Australian performance artists over the last thirty years.

Afterglow includes important examples by a range of artists: Gordon Bennett, Juan Davila, Cherine Fahd, Bert Flugelman, Hayden Fowler, Tim Johnson, Ash Keating, Ben Morieson, Jill Orr, Mike Parr, Robert Rooney, Linda Sproul, Slave Pianos, Stelarc, David M Thomas, Peter Tyndall, Justene Williams

The opening event will be held from 3PM on Saturday 12 February 2011
