About the exhibition

Tracey Moffatt is one of Australia's most successful international artists, known for her film, photography and video works. Drawing on cinema, television and the media, her art is equally inspired by popular culture, recollections from her childhood and art history. Moffatt began her career as an experimental filmmaker and producer of music videos, and she continued making films after establishing herself as a photographer.

She first came to prominence in the Australian art world with her series Something More. Commissioned in 1989 by the Albury Regional Art Gallery and shot in the Link Studios in Wodonga, the series set the tone and themes for much of Moffatt's later work. This sequence of nine images is a loose narrative, shot like film stills, in which the artist references the possible meanings of the title and its hint of sadomasochism.

MAMA also has a selection of photographs from Moffatt's Scarred for Life and Some Lads series.
