FEM-aFFINITY Video Launches to Support National Tour


To support the exhibition FEM-aFFINITY when it tours regionally and nationally in 2020 and 2021, we’ve co-created a wonderful video threading the ideas, thoughts and art that propel the exhibition.

FEM-aFFINITY brings together female artists from Arts Project and wider Victoria whose work share an affinity of subject and process. In this video curator Catherine Bell, alongside exhibiting artists, talks through the affinities, processes and synergies found throughout the exhibition, showing how by situating female Arts Project studio artists alongside other female contemporary artists, the exhibition seeks to uncover shared perspectives and variations on female identity.

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.

FEM-aFFINITY is showing at Arts Project Australia until 20 July 2019. The show will also travel Australia, including:

Devonport Regional Gallery
25 January – 15 March 2020

Benalla Art Gallery
19 April – 28 June 2020
