Heroine – Celebration and Protest in Women’s Art

Frida Kahlo had it – a defiance and confidence that made her the twentieth century’s first ‘selfie superstar’. Georgia O’Keeffe had it – a brazen and innovative palette that confirmed her as the ‘Mother of American Modernism’. Tracy Emin has it – her frank and provocative art exposing an inventory of unconventional womanhood. The ‘it’ is boldness – a determination to speak, without fear or fancy, of the power of the female voice in public discourse.

In celebration of the dynamism and influence of this conversation, .M Contemporary announces the inaugural Heroine Exhibition, to take place in Sydney from March 8th to 24th, coinciding with International Women’s Day 2019. The Exhibition brings together emerging and established Australian artists with a series of renowned international names, each a daring and adventurous identity in women’s art.

Artists to be featured include Joan Ross, Karla Dickens, Hoda, Min Wong, and more.

Sian Watson

Figurative sculptor, Sian Watson, explores the relationships between humans, animals and their shared environments. Watson captures movement and narrative in her ambiguous forms, reflecting themes of evolution, adaptation and plays on varied viewer interpretation.

Jane Guthleben

Through still life paintings of Indigenous flowers, birds, and insects, Guthleben uses the traditions of vanitas and its messages of the transience of life to present a painted vernacular that spans humour, kitsch, historical and environmental themes.

Hannalie Taute

Hannalie Taute (b. 1977) started her life’s journey in a small town called Fochville in Gauteng, South Africa.

Lyndi Sales

Based in Cape Town, South Africa, Lyndi Sales (b.1973) explores themes of perception and vision as well as connectivity. She strives to create in her audience a corporeal response – a feeling of being in one’s own body, to “bring people to their senses.”
