Here and Now

This exhibition titled Here and Now, showcases four contemporary artists identifying as women living and working on Gunditjmara, Tjap Wurrung and Bunganditj country in the Western District.

Artists Kathryn Ryan, Jasmine Mansbridge, Anne Middleton and Madi Whyte create compelling and emotive works. Each artists’ distinctive visual language, fuelled by their diverse backgrounds and contrasting artistic visions, create dichotomic works; both powerful and vulnerable interacting in the space.

Employing their own genre, medium and subject matter, these artists’ converge in one Place (Here). Informed by placethey provide important local cultural commentary, with the works predominantly devoid of the human figure and either examining landscape, still life or abstraction to understand identity and to give insight into their unique lived experience (Now).  

Audiences will ebb and flow in the space between fragility and strength in this moody collection of contemporary works that sit in the crux of co-existence.
