Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery presents a solo exhibition of new works by Bill Henson. This will be Henson’s first exhibition in Sydney in seven years.
There are few Australian artists whose work is as distinctive and immediately recognisable as Henson’s – and arguably no Australian photographers who are as well known. Ever since he had his first solo exhibition at the age of 19 at the National Gallery of Victoria, he’s been a significant artistic voice, best known for his portraits of adolescent subjects presented in dark, dramatic settings.
Exhibition opens: 6–8pm Friday 17 May 2019
