William Yang (Seeing and Being Seen)

March 27, 2021 - August 22, 2021

Free
William Yang

Queensland-born, Sydney-based photographer William Yang’s significant contribution to Australian photography spans five decades. Known for his reflective and joyous depictions of Australia’s LGBTIQ+ scene in the late 70s and 80s through to the present. Yang’s photography is informed by the cultural and political pressures of growing up as a gay man from a Chinese immigrant family in North Queensland.

This exhibition is a major survey of Yang’s work, which traces his career from documentary photography through explorations of cultural and sexual identities and his depictions of landscape. Yang integrates a photographic practice with writing, video and performance.
