Eric Bridgeman was born in Brisbane, Australia in 1986, with heritage from the Chimbu Province in the Highlands of Papua New Guinea. Issues of race, gender, and sexuality are central to his works which range from photography, video, performance, installation and painting. Bridgeman’s debut body of work The Sport and Fair Play of Aussie Rules (2008/09) helped launch his work into state collections and exhibitions at the Institute of Modern Art, Queensland Centre for Photography, Australian Centre for Photography, and Next Wave Festival. In 2010, Bridgeman’s appearances will include the Sydney Mardi Gras Festival, exhibitions at Gallery 4A (SYD), Next Wave Festival (MELB) and the Basil Sellers Ian Potter Art Prize (MELB).
