Women's Work from the Collection

Borrowing its title from the first exhibition of women’s art held in Australia in 1907, Women’s Work celebrates artwork by Australian women artists held in the USC Art Collection.

Women have been artists for centuries, yet it wasn’t until the 1960s and 1970s alongside the wider feminist movement that they began to gain professional recognition. However, this process has been slow and gender inequality is still a persistent issue in visual arts.

Bringing together a diverse range of practices, the exhibition acknowledges the dynamic and vital contribution women artists make to art in Australia and to the USC Art Collection.
