A Women’s Art Register collaborative curatorial project,
Trocadero Artspace, Guest Curator Program for International Women’s Day 2018
Conspicuous Presence makes visible the work of five Australian under-represented women artists, in particular, Women of Colour. Through the heightened material presence of their work, the artists’ deploy conspicuous methods of commanding our attention; accentuating materiality, embracing a highly charged and embodied physicality, and gleaning our sensory reactions through their processes of making.
The contemporary politics of feminist art demand that Women of Colour are given a platform. The Women’s Art Register, historically inclusive of a wide range of cultural and political identities, now shares our platform with these contemporary artists, who make known their powerful identities and intersectional experiences through their materially charged practices. Conspicuous Presence recognises their visibility, acknowledges their presence and respects their voices.
