This is the third abstract biennial hosted by West End Art Space, curated by Anna Prifti, that aims to provide a platform to women abstract artists from the state of Victoria. It began in 2016 with the aim to showcase and advocate that women artists have been an integral part of the Abstract movement.
This year the biennial coincides with the opening of our new gallery space in Adderley Street, West Melbourne. There will be a variety of artworks on show, with women working in a diverse range of contemporary art practices, established and well-recognised careers. Abstraction in an array of styles -lyrical, expressive, intuitive, hard-edged, reductive, minimalist – becomes unified by an ongoing conversation on colour and light.
We welcome short proposals including up to 3 images of your intended exhibiting artworks, a short statement of your artistic career and an artist statement.
*Congratulations to all the finalists. If you have not heard back from us please email the gallery.
