REIMAGINING THE CANON

Curated by Annemarie Murland

Patricia Wilson-Adams | Dr Alison Bell | Chris Byrnes | Dr Penny Dunstan | Sarah Edmondson | Helen Hopcroft | Dr Annemarie Murland | Dan Nelson | Dr Lucy O’Donnell | Marika Osmotherly | Alessia Sakoff | Belinda Street | Kiera O'Toole | Rachel Thomas | Lezlie Tilley | Clare Weeks | Eila Vinwynn | Vera Zulumovski | Lee Zaunders

A gender-inspired lens frames Reimagining the Canon, an exhibition that celebrates women artists and their contribution to and disruption of the ‘master’ narrative of western art.

An interdisciplinary and cross-border approach to practice has meant that the group’s identity is inclusive of professional artists at all stages of their careers. The cohort of performers, historians, writers and academics is curated for the exhibition by Annemarie Murland and offers a huge range of subject matter and media that illustrates self-expression from their individual zones of demarcation. The thematic conditions that surround the purpose and function of the group is simple: everyone’s story matters and should be told.

Exhibition dates 23 October to 17 November 2019
