We Can Be Heroes

Over the Summer of 2020 Newcastle Art Gallery presents a behind the scenes tour seen through the lens of artists capturing intimate moments of Australian and international musicians. The exhibition puts the spotlight on individual stories that highlight similarities between international superstars and those seeking to achieve their dream of becoming heroes.

WE CAN BE HEROES: a backstage pass celebrates the connection and relationship between the photographer and their subject, in this case the musician, through rarely seen touring images, backstage portraits before musicians perform and views from the stage over the audience that very few of us get to experience.
