The Wealth Of Women

Mildura Arts Centre Collection

 
Sunday 8 March is International Women’s Day for which we are asked to ‘actively choose
to challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and celebrate
women’s achievements.’ In this exhibition attention is focused on the achievements of women artists whose sculptures have, and continue to, challenge biases in a discipline that traditionally privileged men. All works are drawn from the Mildura Arts Centre Collection and demonstrate how the creative practice of women sculptors have contributed to broadening perceptions of what it means to work in three-dimensional forms. From Inge King to Yvonne Koolmatrie, Antonia Chaffey to Lorraine Connelly-Northey, Danielle Hobbs to Judy Holding, The Wealth of Women is a celebration of visual diversity and tactile innovation in sculpture.
