Her most recent work investigates aesthetic relationships
between groups of creative practitioners and the global circulation of ideas of fashionability …

Since her teenage years – when she won a prize for an essay submitted to The Ballarat Social Questions Secretariat, while in Year 12 – Sally Gray has been a writer. Until the 1990s her writing remained intrinsically embedded – and not separately articulated – within her creative work. From the early 2000’s she began publishing work exploring the aesthetic and political concerns on which her life and career has been based. Links to Sally’s writing can be found at  unsw.academia.edu/SallyGray

Dr Sally Gray’s research on art and fashion interfaces brings together postmodern historiography, queer theory and historical biography to bear on understanding of the materiality of objects. Gray has placed the making, wearing and aesthetics of clothing and adornment within specific urban subcultures of New York and Sydney. Her most recent work investigates aesthetic relationships between groups of creative practitioners and the global circulation of ideas of fashionability.
