Tracey Moffatt: My Horizon Edited by Natalie King
This is the first book on Tracey Moffatt in ten years. Moffatt has exhibited extensively in museums and galleries across the globe, with more than 100 international exhibitions, including a highly prestigious 2012 solo show at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. She also received the 2007 Infinity Award for Art from New York’s esteemed International Center of Photography. Moffatt has created highly stylized narratives and montage to explore a range of themes, including the complexities of interpersonal relationships, the curiousness of popular culture, and her own profoundly felt childhood memories and fantasies. My Horizon presents a compendium of texts that reflect on Tracey’s highly political and deeply personal fictions, allowing readers to ponder what might be over the horizon. With all new work, including large-scale photography and film, it situates Moffatt’s work in the international arena as an artist who consistently takes the tempo of our times. Contributing authors include Germano Celant, Adrian Martin, Moira Roth, Susan Bright, Djon Mundine, Alexis Wright and Romaine Moreton.
