Phil Brown: Top 5 Arts and Culture events in Brisbane this week: Hillary Green + Friends: Born to Be Alive | The Courier Mail
HILLARY Green is an amazing artist and photographer who can turn herself into just about anyone she wants … male or female.
But she’s had a few medical issues of late and the arts community has rallied around with a fundraising show to help her with her treatment. It will be held at the new Onespace gallery at Highgate Hill.
Gallery director John Stafford, a big-hearted bloke, has gathered other artists to help out and alongside some amazing works by Hillary Green there are pieces by Luke Roberts, Gerwyn Davies, Ray Cook, Sancintya Mohini Simpson and Kelly Morgan.
This photographic exhibition, curated by Jay Younger, is based on queer and mixed race agendas with a healthy dose of humour, style and absurdity.
Hillary Green says her photos of herself as other people are “questioning notions of authenticity and stability of self, while examining the relationship between representation and portrait photography”. It’s brilliant stuff. See for yourself.
Hillary Green + Friends: Born to Be Alive is on from this Wednesday until Saturday January 28 at Onespace gallery, 13a Gladstone Road, Highgate Hill. The gallery is open from 10am – 5pm Wednesday to Friday and on Saturdays from 9am — 3pm or by appointment; onespacegallery.com.au
