WOMEN IN AUSTRALIAN ART

You are warmly invited to the next instalment of our Spotlight on the NGV Collection series this Thursday 18 June at 4pm.

The turn of the twentieth century was a crucial time for women artists in Australia. By 1900, women slowly began to enter the managing ranks of art societies and were provided with professional opportunities. While prejudice about women’s capacity as artists remained widespread, more women gained recognition and respect as ‘professional artists’ in this period than ever before.

Please join us and NGV curators David Hurlston, Susan van Wyk, Beckett Rozentals and Sophie Gerhard for an insightful discussion on the women who paved the way in Australia’s art, design and social history as well as their role in introducing Post-impressionism into Australian art.

Live on Thursday 18 June, 4pm.
