The Artist and Her Work

Lady Sheila Cruthers took an immediate shine to women’s self-portraiture when she began collecting art in the mid-1970s.

  • Dates:May 25 - Dec 7
  • Venue:Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery

Details

  • Hosted By:UWA
  • Venue:Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery
  • Audience:Adults,Wheelchair Access

Description

This interest expanded into a collection strategy she referred to as ‘the artist and her work’ – Lady Cruthers would collect an artist’s work in addition to a self-portrait, with the two works often hung side by side in the family home. Now housed at the University of Western Australia, the Cruthers Collection of Women’s Art holds over 100 self-portraits, many collected as a result of this strategy.

The Artist and Her Work utilises this unusual juxtaposition to showcase the breadth and depth of women’s art practice, replicating the dense and vibrant hanging style of the collection’s original domestic context.

Pairs of works will be exchanged throughout the exhibition period to create a dynamic collection showcase that will reward repeated viewing.
