Join Gallery Director Susi Muddiman OAM and guests for a special guided tour of The Female Gaze, in celebration of International Women’s Day.
The Female Gaze features self-portraits and portraits of women by women artists drawn from the Tweed Regional Gallery collection, spanning historical to contemporary portraits
Throughout art history, female subjects have been portrayed through the male gaze. This exhibition attempts to subvert the male perspective, while making space for female artists to have authorship over their own stories and representation. It also allows us to ask the question: Is there something innately different about the way women portray female subjects?
While women artists continue to be underrepresented across all levels of art institutions, in recent times, landmark exhibitions such as the National Gallery of Australia’s Know My Name are an effort to redress this inequity.
Artists include Natasha Bieniek, Joanna Braithwaite, Lucy Culliton, Julie Fragar, Petrina Hicks, Margaret Olley, Jude Rae, Jenny Sages, and Anne Zahalka.
Bookings are recommended. Limited walk-ins available.
