Tracey Moffatt (Australian, b. 1960) is a filmmaker, video artist, and photographer whose stylistic experiments draw upon both popular culture and her own background, examining subjects such as Aboriginal subjugation, maternal domination, gender stereotypes, and class division. Her most recent video series, Montages, is a decade-long labor of love in which Moffatt and her editor, Gary Hillberg, create “hymns to cinema” by mining Hollywood films to craft new narratives relevant to Moffatt’s themes. This retrospective of Moffatt’s films and videos offers a comprehensive look at her moving-image oeuvre. All films are from Australia and written and directed by Tracey Moffat.
Organized by Jenny He, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Film. The exhibition is made possible by The International Council of The Museum of Modern Art.
