In Her Words Touring: Horsham Art Gallery (March - May 2019)

Touring: Deakin University Art Gallery (11 September - 18 October 2019), Wangaratta Art Gallery (2 November - 15 December), Swan Hill Regional Gallery (16 May - 12 July 2020) Logan Art Gallery QLD (31 July - 5 September 2020) 

In Her Words is a photographic exhibition focusing on women behind and in front of the camera. Women who are in control of their own story; whether they are speaking their own truth or re-enacting the accounts of others. In this exhibition we hear from 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.

Horsham Regional Art Gallery brings together historical works from the Gallery’s Collection with key figures in contemporary Australian photographic practice, the exhibition explores migration, queer culture, Aboriginality, youth and childhood, the body, domesticity, place, identity and female repressions and expression. Through these images the photographers make bold statements about the societies in which they live and work.
