… an important contribution to the scholarship on this artist’s fascinating thirty-five-year-plus practice. Bringing new material and situating Redgate with peers from past and present, this book is essential reading.’

– Judy Annear, Senior Curator, Photographs, Art Gallery of NSW


Jacky Redgate is regarded as one of Australia’s leading contemporary artists, with over thirty-five years of continuous creation, exhibition and innovation. In Mirrors, published in association with the University Art Gallery, attention is given not only to Redgate’s eminent minimalist-conceptual photographs, but also her recent autobiographical work.

Followers of Redgate’s work will find Mirrors to be a rich collection of information on this prominent artist. It features dozens of full-colour plates of Redgate’s photographs, and comprehensive written contributions from Ann Stephen and Robert Leonard exploring Redgate’s work in the context of contemporary Australian photomedia practice.



Robert Leonard is Chief Curator at City Gallery Wellington in New Zealand. He curated Jacky Redgate’s survey, Visions from Her Bed, at the Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane, in 2008.

Ann Stephen is Senior Curator, University Art Gallery, University of Sydney. She curated Mirror Mirror: Then and Now in 2009, and Jacky Redgate: Mirrors at the University Art Gallery in 2015.
