Mythopoetic

WHEN : April 10th – May 18th
WHERE : Queensland College of Art

The exhibition Mythopoetic: women artists from India and Australia takes place across three galleries located at Griffith University’s Queensland College of Art. The work of 15 artists, including a collaborative pair, is brought together by emerging curator Marnie Dean. Mythopoetic: women artists from India and Australia will survey the way in which artists are re-picturing, re-contextualising and re-imagining the feminine. The new mythology referred to is the collective embodiment of stories, histories and images that disrupt assumptions and visual representations of the physical body, identity, gendered roles, and sexuality. Artists include Dhruvi Acharya (India), Fiona Hall (AUS), Sonia Khurana (India), Pushpamala N. (India/UK) and Sangeeta Sandrasegar (AUS).
