 Exhibition Details

 

No Human Being Is Illegal (in all our glory) is an epic life-sized portrait project, initially commissioned for the 19th Biennale of Sydney (2014). The 20 photographic portraits have evolved into intriguing collage works through the collaborative creativity of teams of public participants over the course of many months.
Conceived and organised by artist Deborah Kelly, the work continues to unfold throughout
its tour of regional galleries and museums around Australia.

                                                                                                                                       
For the better part of three decades, Kelly has created a prolific body of mixed-media artworks that are at once unexpected, humorous, provocative, and profound. Often politically motivated, Kelly’s artworks explore ideas of power in all its manifestations, negotiating racial, sexual and religious prejudices and histories.
