Gibson, Ross. Elsewhere : Photo-based Work From Australia : Julie Brown-Rrap, Jeff Gibson, Bill Henson, Jacky Redgate. London, England: Institute of Contemporary Arts, 1988.
The artists represented in this catalogue deal with issues of objectivity, reality and identity as they relate to present conditions in Australia. The sense of displacement - arising from the country's colonial cultural inheritance, its false, eurocentric aspirations and its experience as a media-saturated society - is the common theme of the work. Gibson's two-part essay analyses cultural life of an import-society in terms of conscious space and time. Biographical notes. 51 bibl. ref.
