THE RED PROJECT
In celebration of International Women’s Day, North Sydney Council has invited 74 women artists from across the area to participate in a series of exhibitions to be held at six Council venues across the area throughout the month of March.
The exhibitions showcase work by emerging to established artists who have participated in the Primrose Park Artist Studio and Coal Loader Artist Studio Program, as well as a selection of artists who have had an affiliation with Council’s creative projects and have significantly contributed to the cultural life of the area, including category winners of the North Sydney Art Prize, artists from Primrose Paper Arts, Basketry NSW, the Iranian Women Visual Artists Collective – Australia and Bridget Kennedy Project Space/Ridge Street Artist in Residence Program.
The artists have developed works in response to the colour 'red', as a colour associated with the earth, energy, strength, power, action, determination, passion, desire and love. Artists have responded to the curatorial theme with great imagination exploiting a range of media including installation, sculpture, new media, mixed media, printmaking, textiles, basketry, paper making and contemporary jewellery. This significant cultural event provides a broad view of contemporary visual practice whilst celebrating women’s resilience, creativity and ingenuity.
