Curator's Talk and Tour: Sustaining the art of practice

Friday 8 July, 1pm-2pm

Curator of the Cruthers Collection of Women’s Art, Lee Kinsella recognises that works of art operate as objects embedded in shimmering webs of relations. Come and join the Curator as she discusses the exhibition Sustaining the art of practice, and hear some of the stories of friendship, comradery and community. Artists may be located as active members of communities of makers, in relation to Country, and connected to stories of makers from history. Words, images, fabric and paint are utilised to present tangible objects to the public, thanks to the artist and their many engagements with the world


Lee Kinsella has been Curator of the Cruthers Collection of Women’s Art at the Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery since 2019. She curated the exhibition Miriam Stannage: Survey 2006 – 2016, held at the Gallery in 2016 and edited the accompanying monograph Miriam Stannage: Time Framed that examined Stannage’s 50-year practice. She has curated and managed exhibitions at Australian state and national public institutions including the Art Gallery of Western Australia, The Australian War Memorial and The National Film and Sound Archive (formerly ScreenSound Australia). 

Lee has written catalogue essays, articles and contributed to several books on Australian art.
