Full Disclosure: The World of Ray Cook
Reception: 17th January, 6–9pm. Drinks will be served.
“Carmel by the Green is excited to present Full Disclosure, the first ever presentation of work in the UK by Australian photographer Ray Cook. A deeply incisive, honest and idiosyncratic artist, the exhibition consists of a wide-range of his output from his ever-expanding oeuvre. Starting with some of his earliest photography from the late 1980s — the anarchic When my ship comes in, I’ll be waiting at the airport — it also includes his visual rumination on the aftermath of AIDS with “at first I was Afraid, I was Petrified” in 2002, as well as reflection on his changing relationship with the ‘gay-scene’ (and its appropriation by the mainstream) in Not with a bang but a whimper.”
