Tracey Moffatt

Born 1960, Brisbane. Lives and works Sydney.


A director of photo-narratives, Tracey Moffatt is highly regarded for her formal and stylistic experimentation in film, photography and video. Her photographs often reference the history of art and photography, as well as her own childhood memories and fantasies, exploring issues of race, gender, sexuality and identity.

Since her first solo exhibition at the Australian Centre for Photography in Sydney in 1989, Moffatt 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. In 1997 she was invited to exhibit in the Aperto section of the Venice Biennale. A major exhibition of Moffatt’s work was later held at the Dia Center for the Arts in New York in 1997­98, consolidating her international reputation. A solo survey exhibition featuring her seven video montage works opened in May 2012 at the Museum of Modern Art, New York.

Comprehensive survey exhibitions of Moffatt’s work have been held at the MCA, Sydney (2003–04); Hasselblad Centre, Gothenburg, Sweden (2004); and Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide (2011). In 2006 she had her first retrospective exhibition, Tracey Moffatt: Between Dreams and Reality, in Italy, at Spazio Oberdan, Milan. In 2007 a major monograph, The Moving Images of Tracey Moffatt, was published by Charta Publishers, Milan.

Moffatt’s work is held in numerous international collections, including in Denmark Germany, Japan, Norway and the USA. In Australia she is represented in the collections of the state galleries and a number of regional, university and private collections.
