The exhibition features work by Emma and painter Robyn Ross. In her documentary exhibition, Emma showcases 10 transgender children aged 5-17 in an environment in which they feel comfortable.

Emma’s documentary work has been published by the BBC and Buzzfeed. The BBC article follows up to discuss the complex circumstances that create our gender, an interesting read. One of Emma’s subjects was also the subject of Australian Story’s About A Girl, which aired in August this year.

Artist Robyn Ross explores depictions of femininity in her show The Female Gaze – an ironic take on the male gaze, and ideals of the feminine in art. More about Robyn’s work in an upcoming blog. (Image below: “Top Hat and Tails” © Robyn Ross)
