No Woman is an Island is an ambitious group exhibition of Australian artists that focuses on female experience through the conceptual framework of the ‘female gaze’.
Through the eyes of women artists, the exhibition explores the shift in perception that comes with different ages and phases of life. The artists engage diverse practices to touch on a an array of relationships to womanhood and also explore the theme of woman as Object vs Subject – thereby challenging, complicating, and confronting the traditional notion of a ‘male gaze’ in art.
