1. To promote the work of women artists in the ideas/concept-based areas of practice.
2. To challenge and develop common perceptions. Notions of scale, context and application will be shifted with works that inhabit their space.
3. To present diversity in practice. Ghostnet weaving, panel constructions, welding, recycled metals, glasswork, painting and moving image will be included.
4. To expand perceptions of what creates/constitutes value. Especially in rural and regional communities, visual art is valued in its applied form – when it has an application to useful things. What this exhibition emphasizes is the imagination and aesthetic sensibility that the creators bring to the works. These qualities are increasingly important to our culture.
Education: Exhibiting artists will offer a Q&A panel event to answer questions about arts practice: managing the production of ambitious works and sustainability in practices., Sun.15th August 4.00 – 5.00pm booking required.
