Join us to celebrate the opening of Thinking Business by art collective Barbara Cleveland with special guest speaker and exhibition curator Gina Mobayed.
Thinking Business is a survey exhibition of the Australian art collective Barbara Cleveland that explores forms of female friendship, collaboration and artistic labour. The Barbara Cleveland artist collective was originally established in Sydney on Gadigal land. Founded by Diana Baker Smith, Frances Barrett, Kate Blackmore and Kelly Doley, the collective takes their name from a mythic feminist performance artist recovered from the margins of Australian art history, a figure who has featured in the collective’s work since 2010.
A GOULBURN REGIONAL ART GALLERY AND MUSEUMS & GALLERIES OF NSW TOURING EXHIBITION. THIS PROJECT HAS BEEN ASSISTED BY THE AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT THROUGH THE AUSTRALIA COUNCIL FOR THE ARTS, ITS ARTS FUNDING AND ADVISORY BODY. SUPPORTED BY THE RESTART INVESTMENT TO SUSTAIN AND EXPAND (RISE) FUND – AN AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT INITIATIVE.
