Who run the world? Celebrate local female artists past and present at New Woman

If current world events have you feeling a little bit flat or you're in need of some serious inspo, Museum of Brisbane's latest exhibition New Woman, is guaranteed to have you feeling all of the female vibes. The exhibition officially opens on Friday September 13 and runs through til March 2020.


New Woman celebrates the lives of some of Brisbane’s most profound women artists from 1920 to 2019, from the independent and adventurous to the downright badass babes and trailblazers. Featuring works from more than 80 artists, New Woman presents an intriguing tableau of the art, personal stories and enduring legacies reflected in painting, photography, sculpture, performance and installation works on a scale never before seen.

The exhibit presents a snapshot of each decade, from Brisbane’s decreasing isolation through to the introduction of new ideas of modernism and abstraction to internationally regarded contemporary works. Among the amazing artists represented are Tracey MoffattMargaret CilentoGwendolyn GrantCarol McGregorOlive AshworthJudy WatsonFiona FoleyPamela SeeJay Younger, Davida AllenJames Barth, Megan Cope, Sancintya Mohini Simpson, Naomi Blacklock, Courtney Coombs, Emma Coulter, Rachael Haynes and Elisa Jane Carmichael. New Woman is free to attend so grab some gal pals and check it out.
