Open Artist Call Out
Herland: In search of a female utopia
The Women’s Library is calling for Women artists to participate in our forthcoming exhibition Herland: In search of a Female Utopia, opening in Sydney on 8 March 2019 to celebrate International Women’s Day.
We are calling for Women artists to respond to the theme of Herland by engaging in a dialogue that challenges inequality and social constructs, asks what the future holds and questions what part Women will play in this future. The theme of International Women’s Day 2019 is #Better for Balance; questioning how we might build a balanced world, and in conjunction with this topic, The Women’s Library is asking Women artists to show us their view of a balanced world, what will this future look like and will it be female?
To apply please submit a brief artist statement detailing your work including the concept, medium, dimensions and any special requirements. Please include up to three images of your proposed work, previous works indicative of practice or plans or drawings for works as yet unmade. Include a brief artist CV, your website address and artist social media pages (Instagram, Facebook). In your proposal you should consider how the work will interact and stand with the existing infrastructure of the library and how it responds directly to the theme of Herland: In search of a female utopia
Applications are welcome from professional, mid-career and emerging Women artists Australia wide. For further information and any questions regarding applications please contact Freÿa at exhibitions [at] thewomenslibrary.org.au
