'Know My Name' is an expansive presentation of Australian women artists from 1900 to the present at the National Gallery of Australia. With distinctive female energies, it is unlike any exhibition on this scale seen before. Revelations and connections across time, place and artists create the idea of the 'EVERYWHEN' at its core.
The exhibition is part of a year-long program undertaken by the NGA that includes billboards showing women's art across Australia, the launch of Patricia Piccinini's hot air balloon 'Skywhalepapa', commissioned dance performances, a publication by women writers on art, purchases and commissions of new works by women.
A 4-day conference with international speakers was a lively forum discussing the Now, alternate histories, communities, collectives and lineages, decolonizing feminism and future practices.
An international webinar with Dr. Ann Temkin, Chief Curator of Painting and Sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art in New York; Dr. Deborah Hart, Head Curator of Australian Art at the National Gallery of Australia and Dr. Anne Summers AO, best-selling author, journalist and feminist talk to Time Magazine's award-winning editor-at-large Belinda Luscombe discussed this watershed moment for women artists.
I am proud to have been a part of the billboards with 'Genus 0 No. 1', the publication with a piece on Dora Chapman, the merchandising and the exhibition with 'Sukhavati No. 5'.
