In Her Words
A photographic exhibition focussing on women both behind and in front of the camera. Recognising the significance of feminist photography held by the Horsham Regional Art gallery, guest curator Olivia Poloni was invited to draw works from the collection alongside key figures in contemporary Australian photographic practice. In Her Words presents the work of women who are bold in the telling of their flaws, uncertainties and strengths: aiming to get to the core of the female experience, rights and challenges. Through these images the photographers make bold statements about the societies in which they live and work.
In Her Words features works by Hoda Afshar, Pat Brassington, Polly Borland, Zo. Croggon, Karla Dickens, Joyce Evans, Cherine Fahd, Fiona Foley, Linsey Gosper, Janina Green, Eliza Hutchison, Carol Jerrems, Leah King Smith, Honey Long, Kirsten Lyttle, Tracey Moffatt, Jill Orr, Deborah Paauwe, Polixeni Papapetrou, Clare Rae, Julie Rrap, Simone Slee, Prue Stent and Kawita Vatanajyankur who use the lens as a tool to record the personal and universal world around us.
In Her Words is a NETS Victoria and Horsham Regional Art Gallery touring exhibition.
