The Unflinching Gaze: photo media & the male figure is a major exhibition of over 200 photographs and video works by 62 artists (24 Australian and 38 international) and deals with how the male figure has been represented in photo media over the past 140 years.
The exhibition is curated by Richard Perram OAM, Director Of BRAG, an openly gay man, who brings his “queer” gaze to his selection of images of historic and contemporary photography and film. The exhibition is also an important opportunity to inform and educate the Bathurst community and affirm the local LGBTI community.
