A stunning exhibition by one of Australia's most successful artists, Tracey Moffatt, will open at the USC Art Gallery at 6.30pm on Thursday 15 February.

The exhibition presents a selection of Ms Moffatt’s artworks from the Murray Art Museum Albury (MAMA) Collection, including the iconic Something more series and pieces from her LaudanumScarred for life and Some lads series.

Tracey Moffatt: from the MAMA Collection will be officially opened by Kabi Kabi woman and former Director of the Queensland Indigenous Arts Marketing and Export Agency Helena Gulash.

Ms Moffatt is one of only a few Australian artists to have established a global market for their work and has held more than 100 solo exhibitions across Europe, the United States and Australia.

In 2017, she represented Australia at the prestigious Venice Biennale, widely recognised as the world’s pre-eminent contemporary art exhibition.

Highly regarded for her formal and stylistic experimentation in film, photography and video, Ms Moffatt’s work draws on the history of cinema, art and photography, as well as popular culture and her own childhood memories and fantasies.

USC Art Gallery Manager Megan Williams said it was an honour to bring the work of such a significant Australian artist to the Sunshine Coast.

“While many of the works were made close to 30 years ago, they are still as vibrant and relevant today as they were when they were made,” she said.

“Many people will be familiar with Moffatt’s Something more series, as it is one of her most acclaimed works and really set the tone for much of her later work. What is less known is that the series was commissioned by Albury Regional Art Gallery.

“This is a great example of the remarkable vision of regional galleries and the important role they play in the development of artists careers.”

This touring exhibition from the MAMA Collection will continue at the USC Art Gallery until 17 March.

The gallery is located at USC’s Sunshine Coast Campus on Sippy Downs Drive, Sippy Downs. It is open free to the public from 10am to 4pm Monday to Saturday and closed Sundays and public holidays.
