New travelling exhibition, FEM-aFFINITY, arrives at Noosa Regional Gallery
Curated by contemporary artist and academic Catherine Bell, FEM-aFFINITY brings together female artists from Arts Project and wider Victoria whose works share an affinity of subject and process.
By situating female Arts Project studio artists alongside other female contemporary artists, the exhibition seeks to uncover shared perspectives and variations on female identity. Drawing upon inter-disciplinary and collaborative approaches, and understanding artworks as a complex and nuanced way of thinking about embodied knowledge, the exhibition reveals how feminism materialises in distinctive and uncanny ways.
Featuring works by: Fulli Andrinopoulos, Dorothy Berry, Yvette Coppersmith, Wendy Dawson, Prudence Flint, Helga Groves, Bronwyn Hack, Janelle Low, Eden Menta, Jill Orr, Lisa Reid, Heather Shimmen, Cathy Staughton and Jane Trengove.
Please note that this exhibition contains nudity and images of a sexual nature, viewer discretion advised.
FEM-aFFINITY is a NETS Victoria and Arts Project Australia touring exhibition, showing at Noosa Regional Gallery from 25 July to 12 September 2020.
