Archie Rose Conversation Bar is a regular event series held in our bar mezzanine featuring some of Australia’s most brilliant cultural arbiters and tastemakers. We’re thrilled to welcome Art Gallery of New South Wales for a very special evening in Conversation Bar at the Archie Rose Bar this September.
Samantha Luck (Head of Business Development and Partnerships AGNSW) and Lisa Catt (Assistant Curator, International Art, AGNSW) discuss ways in which the Art Gallery of New South Wales is working to address gender imbalance within its exhibitions, collections and programming.
Enjoy an evening of drinks and discussion and hear from curator Lisa Catt about the upcoming exhibition Here we are which explores the intricacies of human relationships through remarkable new acquisitions for the AGNSW collection by some of the most compelling women artists at work today. From Australia’s Tracey Moffatt, Judith Wright, Deborah Kelly and Justene Williams to internationally renowned figures Jenny Saville, Dana Schutz, Tracey Emin, Deana Lawson, Njideka Akunyili Crosby and Kimsooja.
AGNSW will also share more information on its new women’s membership program, Fearless, which supports important conservation projects focused on restoring works by women artists. This is part of the AGNSW’s wider commitment to ensuring images and stories of the experiences of women are recognised and celebrated.
