WILDCARDS: Bill Henson shuffles the deck

1 February 2014 to 30 March 2014

For the first time Bill Henson will curate an exhibition of Australian photography.

Drawing on MGA’s collection, Henson has selected around 100 photographs which have gripped, intrigued, or otherwise engaged him. This selection of photographs will be arranged throughout MGA in an experience that will be as intriguing as it will be revealing of Henson’s sensibilities. The exhibition includes many rarely seen photographs, covering the history of Australian photography.
