Both based in Sydney, Jacky Redgate and Robyn Stacey came to prominence in the mid 1980s as photographers. Organised by the National Art Gallery, Wellington, this exhibition brought together a comprehensive overview of their last five years of practice. Stacey’s imagery drew on popular culture while Redgate’s works “offered an opportunity for the quiet contemplation of disruption, displacement and transformation” (exhibition catalogue). While Redgate went onto work with sculpture and painting, both women helped redefine the view of photography as an art form equal to any other – a position argued by other emerging women artists such as Anne Ferran, Debra Phillips and Anne Zahalka.
