Inspired by the Know My Name movement and in a cultural partnership with the National Gallery of Australia, HERE I AM: Art by Great Women is a major cultural arts festival at the Kambri precinct, launching on 16 November 2020 until 5 March 2021.
The summer-long family-friendly festival aims to re-energise our cultural landscape by showcasing some of our best female creative talent, in the heart of our nation.
As part of the HERE I AM: Art by Great Women festival, this outdoor public art exhibition along Exhibition Avenue – Kambri’s newest cultural space – features 24 diverse contemporary artists from across Australia including Aretha Brown, Gemma O’Brien, Nicole Reed, Nanami Cowdroy, George Rose, Libby Harward, Georgia Hill and Maddie Gibbs.
Their large-scale works span multi-disciplinary practices including street art, fine art, photography, and illustration, and will be displayed on exhibition cubes along University Avenue.
Decals placed on the ground in front of each artwork allow viewers an insight into the artist’s motivation, intentions and inspiration.
The exhibition is free of charge and will be on display 24 hours a day, powered by solar lights.
