Working across photographic and object-based practices, Jacky Redgate has exhibited
extensively within Australia and internationally since the end of the 1970s.
In 2004 the Contemporary Art Centre of South Australia presented a comprehensive
three-part survey exhibition of Redgate’s work and a substantial artist monograph, which
formed the basis of similar surveys at the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts and
Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney in 2005, as well as at the Institute of Modern Art,
Brisbane in 2008. The survey exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art incorporated a
curatorial project by Redgate of selected works from the MCA Collection.
Redgate’s work has been included in major group exhibitions including the 1986, 1988 and
1990 Biennales of Sydney, Photography is Dead! Long Live Photography! (Museum of
Contemporary Art, Sydney, 1996), What is this Thing Called Photography? (Art Gallery of
New South Wales,1999), the Clemenger Art Award (National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne,
2006)and Cubism and Australian Art, (Heidi Museum of Modern Art, Melbourne, 2009–10).
In 2011 Redgate's work Light Throw (mirrors) #4 won the William and Winifred Bowness
Artworks exhibited in a Group Exhibition
