3 Feb 2021 to 14 Mar 2021 Once Only Event
Bunjil Place, together with National Exhibitions Touring Support (NETS) Victoria, present FEM-aFFINITY – an exhibition of female artists from Arts Project Australia (APA) and wider Australia whose work share an affinity of subject matter, technique and process. The exhibition’s curator, Associate Professor Catherine Bell from the Australian Catholic University, uncovers variations of female identity and perspectives on historical feminism by situating these female artists together.
Drawing upon interdisciplinary approaches, the exhibition also considers how artworks are complex and nuanced ways of thinking about embodied knowledge and how it aligns with identity politics explored in contemporary art.
The 14 exhibiting artists are 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.
Arts Project Australia supports artists with intellectual disabilities, promoting their work and advocating for inclusion within contemporary art practice.
Bunjil Place is an award-winning cultural precinct in the City of Casey established in 2017. The name and architectural design of the facility were inspired by stories of Bunjil the ‘creator’, from our First Nation’s People. Bringing together an outdoor community plaza, theatre, library, gallery and more – Bunjil Place showcases high quality arts and entertainment in Melbourne’s south east.
