Lookin Up

Dianne Jones

29 Aug 2008 to 18 Oct 2008

Jones' exhibition, titled Lookin Up, explores ideas of how certain gendered and raced bodies are socialised to look up to masculine heroes, idols and role models. In examining which identities were privileged in her memories of growing up as a young girl, Jones moves from the personal effects to the wider implications of why specific figures were present in the position of role models or aspirational figures.

From essay by Dr. Odette Kelada.
