Go Girl

New or Used: $43.95
"Mayor shocked by dancing pictures" announced the headlines in 1975 as a media tempest gathered around young Taranaki artist/photographer Fiona Clark and the exhibition "The Active Eye". The exhibition, the first major photographic survey, was touring the country to escalating moral outrage over the inclusion of two of Clark's images of tranvestites dancing. The exhibition never opened in Auckland and the two images were removed from exhibition at many venues.

Both an exhibition and a catalogue, "Go Girl" revisits this episode, one of the most controversial in New Zealand's photographic history. It presents in full for the first time Fina Clark's photographic series "Dance Party", from which the two images in "Active Eye" were selected. "Go Girl" traces the controversial history of those works, the refusals to exhibit them and the prejudices in the media and public imagination against the subject matter.

Included in "Go Girl" is a larger group of images from the 1970s, which also focus on the gay, lesbian and transgender community in New Zealand. It is the first time that this work has been seen in its entirety. Clark has updated this series by re-photographing a number of surviving subjects in a warm and engaging manner.
