James Tylor: Act Like A Man - Art Collector

James Tylor, Act Like a Man (Bum Fluff), 2017. Becquerel daguerreotype, 10.2 x 15.2cm. Courtesy of the artist and GAGPROJECTS, Adelaide.


Act Like a Man is an exhibition of new daguerreotypes by James Tylor examining traditional masculinity in contemporary Australia. His practice examines concepts around cultural identity in Australian contemporary society and social history. Tylor’s multicultural heritage – Aboriginal, Maori and European – is a focus of his artwork, which recognises the profound impact of colonisation and migration.

“In mainstream society, there are many stereotypes of male masculinity that determine how men are meant to behave… These pressures can be enormous and without support and guidance it is easy to understand how things can go awry.” - James Tylor.
