Zahalka is one of Australia’s most highly regarded photo-media artists having exhibited extensively in Australia and overseas for over thirty years. She has held over 40 solo exhibitions and her work is included in all major museums in Australia. Zahalka’s work has often explored cultural and gendered stereotyping, challenging these with a humorous and critical voice. She deconstructs familiar images and re-presents them to allow other figures and stories to be represented that reflect on diversity and difference. More recently her concerns have shifted to the environment and the ecological disaster that has been unfolding globally and in her country. In 2023, Zahalka had a major survey show ZAHALKAWORLD: An Artists Archive at the Museum of Australian Photography and won the prestigious Bowness Photography Prize for her Kunstkammer.

Zahalka is represented by ARC ONE Gallery, Melbourne and Dominik Mersch Gallery, Sydney
