Abstraction: Celebrating Australian women abstract artists

Past exhibition

Abstraction is one of the most influential developments in art history. Female artists have been at the forefront of its development and yet, until recently, their contribution has been obscured from the art-historical narrative. This exhibition resurrects and examines the myriad of ways that Australian women artists have championed abstraction and kept it alive in the twenty-first century.
