Mad women in the attic?

A Feminist Revisioning of the Achive

To coincide with the 40th anniversary of International Women’s Year and the 125th anniversary of the University of Tasmania, the Plimsoll Gallery’s exhibition, Mad women in the attic? will reprise the significant contributions by great female artists and writers to the Tasmanian College of the Arts public program over three decades.

A rich set of themes emerges from these women’s art: domestic relations, sexual politics, activism, queer and racial politics, empowerment, the gaze, portraiture, self-portraiture and performance – the body as site of identity, vulnerability, power, intimacy, transgression, subversion, abjection, violation and masquerade. The curators, Mary Scott and Maria Kunda, have invited a selection of Tasmanian and international artists and writers to reflect upon and amplify this storehouse of female expression to revise and re-envision these themes.

Curators: Mary Scott and Maria Kunda

 

Presented by The Plimsoll Gallery, Tasmanian College of the Arts (University of Tasmania)
