Political Women

Amani Haydar, Burnout Culture, acrylic on canvas, 2019.png

Political Women brings together artists from diverse cultural, generational, personal and artistic perspectives to illustrate and celebrate the complexity of contemporary feminist discourse and the art made within it. Each artist’s practice is entangled with politics, personal narrative and activism to highlight the impacts and consequences of colonisation and patriarchal power.

The exhibition draws attention to the overlaps and divergences in the lives of the artists, while also placing regional and urban women standing side by side, working towards reconciliation, accepting differences and creating a more just world through empathy and tolerance. 

This exhibition is curated by Julie Montgarrett and Sarah McEwan.
