Join us for this Auslan interpreted tour through Paper Cut: Part 2. This second hang of works on paper from the Cruthers Collection of Women’s Art features representations of landscape and animals alongside political posters relating to the environment.
Lee Kinsella, Curator of Paper Cut, will provide social, political and historical information about the works on display.
Please note: due to Covid-19 safety precautions, registration is essential for this event and space is limited.
Paper Cut is an exhibition of works on paper from UWA’s Cruthers Collection of Women’s Art. The ‘cut’ in the exhibition’s title refers to both the technique and to the incisive cut of much of the subject-matter. It is a mass showing that reveals the particular strengths of the collection and the remarkable breadth of content, featuring many works on public display for the first time.
A Paper Cut residency program complements the collection display, showcasing print media and paper forms currently being produced by four local groups in dialogue with the themes, materials, strategies and processes of the exhibition.
Curated by Lee Kinsella, Curator of the Cruthers Collection of Women’s Art.
Paper Cut contains images of deceased Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
Some works in the exhibition refer to adult themes.
