The most comprehensive survey of Mick Richards’ work to date, Above and below traces nearly four decades of Richards’ photography and media practice.
This exhibition is a culmination of Richards’ lifelong role as an observer of social codes, rituals and traditions, largely based on conventions and unspoken power.
Co-Curators Megan Cope, Warraba Weatherall and Kon Gouriotis have analysed more than 500,000 images to present photographs that discuss expressive social documentary work seeking the unforeseen, revealing colonial realities, dysfunction, and social-cultural acceptance.
