Nov 22 to Dec 7 (opening Thurs Nov 21, 6.30pm all welcome) Georgia Janetski: Traces Of The Female Self. Georgia Janetzki’s experimental self-portraiture addresses the personal and at the same time examines the wider community of female artists and the gender balance within our public institutions. Exploring how women have always been present as artists but not often included within the canon of Western art history, Janetzki exposes this disconnect and asks the question, why the canon is also nothing like us. This exhibition constitutes the visual outcomes emerging from a practice-led Masters research project at the School of Arts, Federation University Australia.
