Here we are
24 Aug – 13 Oct 2019
Location: Contemporary galleries
Artists consider the connections we create with others and how these connections resonate outwards through our lives.
Here we are features new acquisitions for the Gallery’s collection by some of the most compelling women artists at work today. Focusing upon figuration and portraiture, their works present human relationships in all their intricacy, pathos and power.
The title Here we are can also be read as a declaration of artistic purpose. It is a statement that acknowledges the way each artist uses their chosen medium to stake out a place for herself in the world – and in art history.
Exhibiting artists: Njideka Akunyili Crosby, Louise Bourgeois, Candice Breitz, Kushana Bush, Katthy Cavaliere, Tracey Emin, Sue Ford, Deborah Kelly, Kimsooja, Mernet Larsen, Deana Lawson, Rosa Loy, Tracey Moffatt, Wangechi Mutu, Jenny Saville, Dana Schutz, Marie Shannon, Kiki Smith, Justene Williams, Judith Wright, Miwa Yanagi and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye.
