Gone Dead is an essay by Lisa Sullivan that charts the formation of a friendship beteween artists Jon Campbell and Stephen Bush, against a backdrop of Melbourne’s post-punk scene in the early 1980s. Sullivan reveals how a shared connection to music cemented a lasting bond between Campbell and Bush, moulded their careers, and eventually led to their creative collaboration.

Gone Dead was produced to coincide with collaborative exhibitions between Stephen Bush and Jon Campbell, presented at Sutton Gallery and Darren Knight Gallery in 2021.
