National Women's Art Exhibition

The National Women’s Art Exhibition was a series of independent shows held in over 150 venues in 1995 to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of the International Women’s Year.

According to Kerr and Holder, Past Present (1999 p ix) the NWAE event united hundreds of artists, art writers, curators and art institutions in a common goal for the first time.

DAAO has been working with Contemporary Art and Feminism to collect data on this series of events so that researchers can begin to interrogate its nature and the impact it had on the Australian cultural landscape. These are just a few visualisations of the kind of data we've been collecting.
