‘HEY GURL!... how are you going?’*

INFORMATION

HEY GURL!... how are you going?’*

 HEY GURL is an exhibition that aims to open up a supportive space for emerging female artists. The artworks featured respond to contemporary media discussions relating to issues of gender equality and the complexities of gender identity.

'A national callout was published on social media for artists to participate. Peel then held informal chats to develop the ideas for the exhibition in collaboration with the artists. HEY GURL seeks to show the exhibiting female artists’ reflections on their lived experiences.'In the spirit of support, we got together for coffees, phone calls and e-mails and had conversations relating to personal experiences and artistic practice.' - Kimberley Peel

HEY GURL features 20 female artists whose practices employ a variety of media. Jewellery, puppet-making and audiovisual installations are presented alongside more traditional methods of painting and photography.The selected emerging artists bring unique perspectives across a diverse range of ages and life experiences. 

 

*Daily office talk at Gaffa Gallery, Jenny Du and Kimberley Peel, September 2016 – Present.
