In celebration of Michael Gudinski’s legacy, the Ballarat International Foto Biennale in partnership with Mushroom Group presents an exhibition of music photography. Through an Open Call, music photographers were given the opportunity to submit photographs featuring artists under the Mushroom Group and Frontier Touring banner. Number One | Gudinski is an ode to Michael Gudinski, whose passion for music was legendary. This exhibition celebrates his advocacy for the arts and lasting impact.
Often referred to by those in the know as the Godfather of Aussie music, Michael Gudinski is widely recognised as the most powerful and influential figure in the Australian music industry. As Chairman of Mushroom Group – the largest independent music and entertainment company in Australia and New Zealand, home to Frontier Touring, Chugg Entertainment, eight record labels and over two dozen other specialist divisions – Gudinski’s clout was undeniable. The exhibition features photographs of Elton John, Paul McCartney, Vance Joy, Courtney Barnett, Troye Sivan and many more.
For the first time, Ballarat International Foto Biennale tickets are available for a single Day Pass or, for the complete experience, purchase a new 3-Day Pass for multiple entries to the Biennale’s core exhibitions in various venues during the festival. All Festival Passes include a single timed visit to the Linda McCartney: Retrospective at the Art Gallery of Ballarat.
