The Culprit Club is excited to be launching Brisbane’s largest display of women’s street art through their debut Outdoor Gallery Exhibition, Women’s Work, showcasing across multiple Brisbane Laneways from August 12, 2019. The Culprit Club is a street art agency based in Brisbane, who is working to support and represent emerging and established artists locally, nationally and internationally.
Presented in partnership with BAM – Brisbane Art Matriarchs, Brisbane City Council, and Queensland College of Art, Griffith University Women’s Work Brisbane Outdoor Galleries contributes to Brisbane as a vibrant and culturally inclusive creative community, while providing equal opportunity, equitable employment and ongoing development opportunities for women in the art and design industry. The exhibition will feature the work of twelve local artists, designers, and practitioners from Brisbane including; Courtney Brims, Claire Tracey, Dominique Falls, Emma Wright, Lusid Art, Mosessa, Nicola Holly, Rachael Sarra, Rae Cooper, Sarah Hazlehurst, Tori-Jay Mordey and Zoe Porter. The Women’s Work Outdoor Galleries Exhibition will feature leading local artists across 10 large scale, inner-city locations including the William Jolly Bridge, King George Square, and major city laneways.
Exhibition Curators Claire Tracey, Rae Cooper, Nicola Holly and Sarah Hazlehurst have said that gender bias remains a major problem in the modern art world and this exhibition is shining a light on the issue. “These women have created artworks that capture the heart of Brisbane and respond to its landscape from modern and historical perspectives. We are very proud to be a team of independent, innovative and resilient women, representing and promoting excellence and equality in art throughout our city, ”
The artworks will be on display and free for viewers to experience each day from 12th August – 01 December with a range of activities including curated walking tours, public program talks, and events to be offered in the coming weeks.
