After gracing the walls of the Holmes à Court Gallery @ no.10, this exhibition travels to the Holmes à Court Gallery @ Vasse Felix.
This is the second instalment of the Collection Focus series of annual exhibitions drawn exclusively from the Janet Holmes à Court Collection. Here we present art works which have rarely been on display. This selection reveals the substantial contribution women artists have made to the field of abstract art in Australia. Women artists have played a fundamental role in the development of abstract art throughout the 20th century. The specific period of focus for this exhibition is the 1980s and the works span across painting, collage, ceramics and sculpture, to celebrate and acknowledge the crucial significance of abstract art by women in Australia in the 1980s.
