‘There was abstraction, colour and movement, and a certain innocent joie de vivre.’ – William Yang

William Yang is an iconic and celebrated Australian photographer, performer, artist and filmmaker. Starting his career in fashion photography, he quickly turned to social documentary photography.

This collection-in-focus display highlights William Yang’s photography of Sydney Mardi Gras festivals between 1981 and 2003. The 24 images on display explore four themes: Protest, Community, Art and Remembrance.

This display can be seen in our Treasures Gallery from December 6. Entry to the Gallery is free and no bookings are required.

William Yang’s Mardi Gras was curated by Allister Mills.
