In Her Words opens at Wangaratta Art Gallery


Opening 2 November In Her Words is the first touring exhibition to show the riches of contemporary photography from the Horsham Regional Art Gallery collection showcasing women behind and in front of the camera. Recognizing the significance of feminist photography, guest curator Olivia Poloni was invited to draw works from the collection alongside key figures in contemporary Australian photographic practice. In Her Words presents the work of 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. Through these images the photographers make bold statements about the societies in which they live and work.
