Nevertheless, she persisted

In 2014 The CoUNTess Report published data on the under-representation and recognition of women in Australian contemporary visual arts since 2008, an issue amplified today by ongoing dialogues on the visibility/invisibility of female artists and a sociopolitical climate defined by the 2018 Women’s Marches, and the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements. ‘Nevertheless, she persisted’ addresses this gender disparity.

The exhibition features a mix of emerging and mid-career female and non-binary artists including Grace Blake, Sabella D’Souza, Leila El Rayes, Brooke Leigh, Eugenia Lim, Cat Mueller, Claudia Nicholson, Ebony Russell, Georgia Saxelby and Naomi Segal.
