Australia’s largest collection of women’s art is now available online. In the second podcast from the winter season of the Seesaw Lounge, curator Lee Kinsella takes us through some of her favourite works.
The winter season of the Seesaw Lounge is being released as a podcast series. In this conversation Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery curator Lee Kinsella shares her insights into the Cruthers Collection of Women’s Art, ahead of its release into the virtual realm.
This is the second episode of the Seesaw Lounge, recorded with Nina Levy, Lee Kinsella, and Seesaw Friends on Wednesday 1 July 2020.
Kinsella discusses how the process of curatorial acquisition and restorative action can paint women back into art history, and the University of Western Australia’s ongoing drive to increase accessibility to its art collections.
The Cruthers Collection of Women’s Art was released online on 18 July 2020. Exhibitions drawing from the collection can be viewed year round in the Lady Sheila Cruthers Gallery at Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery.
