Contemporaries members were treated to a unique evening of art and conversation in sumptuous surroundings at a one-night-only premiere of About Face: Are you a boy or a girl? by Tamara Dean.

Held in a grand Georgian terrace in the inner-city suburb of Paddington, amongst a treasure troves of antique artifacts, paintings, prints and lavish 1970s fixtures, the event provided members with an exclusive preview of Tamara’s new series of intimate portraits.

Host Owen Craven led a fascinating conversation with Tamara, touching on her process of developing this new body of work, the influence of her career in photojournalism on her artistic practice, and her drive to create complete sensory experiences. Most memorable of all was the chance to meet Tamara and her subjects, providing an incredible insight into the creative process and the relationships it can create.
