Abstraction: celebrating Australian women abstract artists - Art Collector

Grace Crowley, 'Abstract painting' 1947, oil on cardboard, 60.7 × 83.3 cm. Courtesy of the artist, the National Gallery of Australia, and Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre.  Abstraction is one of the most influential developments in art history. Evolving from avant-garde movements in Europe at the close of the nineteenth century, it has continued to flourish through to contemporary times. Women artists have been at the forefront of its development and yet, until recently, their contribution has been obscured from the art-historical narrative. This exhibition resurrects and examines the myriad of ways that Australian women artists have championed abstraction and kept it alive in the twenty-first century.
