FEM-aFFINITY is travelling throughout Australia in 2020 and 2021, with the rescheduling of events and venues due to COVID-19
Curated by academic and artist Catherine Bell, FEM-aFFINITY brings together female artists from Arts Project Australia and wider Victoria whose work shares an affinity of subject and process.
By situating female Arts Project studio artists alongside other female contemporary artists, the exhibition uncovers shared perspectives on female identity. Drawing upon interdisciplinary 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 artists Bronwyn Hack, Cathy Staughton, Dorothy Berry, Eden Menta, Fulli Andrinopoulos, Heather Shimmen, Helga Groves, Jane Trengove, Janelle Low, Jill Orr, Lisa Reid, Prudence Flint, Wendy Dawson and Yvette Coppersmith.
