Don't Call Me Shirley
(Don't) Call Me Shirley by Brett M. Cochrane
Published originally in 1995, Hardcover
(Don't) Call Me Shirley is the sixth and, to date, most significant book by Brett M. Cochrane. Like Cochrane's previous projects, this book and accompanying exhibition of the 1994 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Party and Sleaze Ball, at Sherman Galleries, are artistic revelations of important aspects of Australian culture. This book and exhibition, thematically linked to Cochrane's past works, are significant because they are the result of explorations of technical refinements and a developing eye.
