FEM-aFFINITY

Galleries, Museums and Collections

Devonport Regional Art Gallery, in partnership with National Exhibitions Touring Support (NETS) Victoria, presents FEM-aFFINITY – an exhibition of female artists from Arts Project Australia and wider Australia whose work shares an affinity of subject matter, technique and process. The exhibition’s curator, Associate Professor Catherine Bell from the Australian Catholic University, seeks to uncover related variations of female identity and perspectives on historical feminist concepts by situating these female artists alongside each other.
Drawing upon interdisciplinary approaches, such as painting, printmaking, drawing, performance and photography, the exhibition also considers how artworks are a complex and nuanced way of thinking about embodied knowledge and how it aligns with identity politics explored in contemporary art.
The 14 exhibiting artists include Fulli Andrinopoulos, Jane Trengove, Dorothy Berry, Jill Orr, Wendy Dawson, Helga Groves, Bronwyn Hack, Heather Shimmen, Eden Menta, Janelle Low, Cathy Staughton, Prudence Flint, Lisa Reid, and Yvette Coppersmith.
