Hayley Millar Baker’s There We Were All In One Place
Gunditjmara woman Hayley Millar Baker, the artist behind the monochrome tram that whizzed around Melbourne in 2018, has taken her signature black-and-white style to Sydney for her first solo exhibition.
There We Were All In One Place is comprised of images taken by Baker overlaid with archived pictures taken by her grandfather of his family. By digitally editing the photographs together, Baker reappropriates history in a way that reconsiders traditional understandings of time, memory and place within the Australian imagination.
There’s an additional learning experience that encourages tertiary students (though everyone is welcome) to explore their own experiences with the themes of the exhibition. There is also a catalogue available to purchase which includes reproductions of the works and additional essays and poems by other artists.
There We Were All In One Place is free and runs until June 4. UTS Gallery is open Monday to Friday from 11am to 4pm.
