AbstractHistoryArchive Description

''My Generation' is a work incorporating spoken word, image projection and live music. [It] is a reflection on William's experience and documentation of the artistic, bohemian, and underground social scenes in Sydney in the late 1970s and early 1980s. 'My Generation' recalls the glamour of Jenny Kee and Linda Jackson's fashion events, the strengthening of the Sydney gay and lesbian community and the flowering of the Sydney Mardi Gras, and the theatrical circle of Jim Sharman, Kate Fitzpatrick and Patrick White.'
