Miriam Stannage: Survey 2006 - 2016

30 July  - 24 September 2016

Photographs | Books | Objects

Miriam Stannage:  Survey 2006 - 2016 showcases Stannage’s characteristically wry observations of life, and testifies to her ongoing experimentation and innovation across a range of media. The artist utilises everyday objects to offer a commentary on fame, and the fragile and transitory nature of our time on this planet.

Photographs from major series including Elvis and Marilyn (Spirit Photographs), 2009-2010, Paradise Lost, 2008 and her most recent Security Notice series, 2014 - ­2015 will be on display.

Artwork with type that says dont give in to the fear

Kelly Doley: Things Learnt About Feminism

8 October - 10 December 2016

Ninty-five hand-painted posters about feminism now.

In 2012 Australian artist Kelly Doley initiated the project The Learning Centre: Two Feminists, inviting 16 participants from different backgrounds to teach her about feminism. Thoughts, facts and ideas from these conversations were translated into 95 hand-painted posters, transforming the live encounter between the artist and participant into an archive of feminist thought and history.

Unapologetically brash and knowingly contradictory, Kelly Doley: Things Learnt About Feminism investigates the tropes and cliches of the political poster and celebrates the strength and diversity of feminism today.

Presented by the UWA’s Cruthers Collection of Women’s Art, the nation’s only public collection of art by Australian women.
