FEM-aFFINITY

Curated by Dr Catherine Bell, ‘FEM-aFFINITY’ explores womanhood through the eyes of Arts Project studio artists alongside other contemporary female artists across the country with an exhibition revealing varied perspectives of female identity. Through interdisciplinary approaches, feminist methodologies and looking at artwork as a complex and nuanced way of thinking about embodied knowledge, we see how feminism materialises in distinctive and uncanny ways.

Artists include: Helga Groves, Wendy Dawson, Yvette Coppersmith, Lisa Reid, Prudence Flint, Dorothy Berry, Cathy Staughton, Jane Trengove, Fulli Andrinopoulos, Heather Shimmen, Bronwyn Hack, Jill Orr, Janelle Low and Eden Menta.
