New Woman

Museum of Brisbane

13th September - 15th March

New Woman recognises the lives of Brisbane women artists over the past 100 years. From the independent and adventurous to the often overlooked, it explores the trailblazing women who have continued to take the lead in Brisbane art.

The free exhibition is a snapshot of the art, personal stories and enduring legacies of Brisbane’s most significant and ground-breaking artists between 1920–2019. They're reflected in artworks, sculpture, performance and installation works on a scale never seen.

Featuring more than 80 artists and 110 works, New Woman traces vast changes in ideas of gender, artistic styles, subject matter and ways of seeing the world.

Discover more about the women in Brisbane art with our extensive range of related events, including talks, tours, performances and workshops.
