A great way to kickstart the year! Join me at the official launch event for Of Colour and Light – Women Abstract Artists Biennial on 19 January at West End Art Space, with guest speaker Leah Justin from the Justin Art House Museum.
Exhibition dates: 16 December 2020–28 February 2021.
This is the third abstract biennial curated by Anna Prifti, providing a platform for emerging and well-established women abstract artists from the state of Victoria. Working across a diverse range of contemporary art practices, abstraction appears in an array of styles—lyrical, expressive, intuitive, hard-edged, reductive and minimalist—becoming unified by an ongoing conversation on colour and light.
