WHOSE STORY IS THIS? ANYWAY!
——A DIALOGUE BETWEEN CHINESE AND AUSTRALIAN WOMEN ARTISTS
With the continuous improvement of women’s status and role in today’s society, women have made more and more contributions in various fields. Coincided with International Women’s day in March, the Chinese Cultural Centre in Sydney now presents a contemporary art exhibition curated by LI Hong and mentored by Nicholas TSOUTAS, formally the Zelda Stedman Lecturer in Contemporary Arts Practice at Sydney College of the Arts, the University of Sydney. Whose Story Is This? Anyway … A Dialogue Between Chinese and Australian Women Artists and related forum for open discussion, as a way of showing the female artists’ outstanding achievements in the field of culture and art, and also to strengthen the China-Australia exchange and dialogue between the female artists.
The exhibition features contemporary art works by 3 women artists of Chinese origin, Lindy LEE, LI Hong, and WANG Lan, along with 3 Australian female artists Bronwyn BANCROFT, Eugenia RASKOPOULOS and Nike SAVVAS, including painting, video art, photography and scalpture, which reflect the invaluable contributions and positive efforts made by women artists from China and Australia, and how such contributions influence, change and reconstruct both the culture and the society we live in.
These art works explore the gender differences that still exist in an increasingly complex society and their impact on artistic creation from women’s perspective, emphasizing the importance and equality of women in the development of contemporary art. Through this exhibition, you will deepen your understanding of female contemporary art from different cultural backgrounds, and gain a brand new way of perceiving today’s world from different perspectives.
