No Second Thoughts: Reflections on the Artemis Women’s Art Forum

Presented by the Cruther’s Collection of Women’s Art, this exhibition of newly commissioned works delivers four artists responses to the Artemis archive which holds correspondence, meeting minutes, exhibition ephemera, artist files and other documentation by the Artemis Women’s Art Forum Inc. (1985-1990), a group who worked towards raising the status of women in the arts. Former Artemis committee members Penny Bovell and Jo Darbyshire, with early career artists Teelah George and Taylor Reudavey examine the history of Western Australian feminist art.
