Fiercely independent, adventurous and often overlooked, Brisbane’s female artists have employed passion and determination to ensure art in Brisbane finds its voice. Each generation has produced artwork in response to the rapidly changing social, cultural and economic circumstances of the city. New Woman traces vast changes in ideas of gender, artistic styles, subject matter and ways of seeing the world through sculpture, painting and photography.

Works from leading 1920s artists and advocates Daphne Mayo and Vida Lahey set the scene for the vital role women played in gaining respect and investment for the city’s arts. With Brisbane’s decreasing isolation in the following decades, new ideas of modernism and abstraction found unique interpretations in the works of female artists.

While Brisbane artists such as Judy Watson, Fiona Foley, Tracey Moffatt and Davida Allen are contemporary leaders on the world stage, New Woman explores the influence of generations of women before them.

New Woman will include significant historical and contemporary works from the Museum of Brisbane and City of Brisbane Collections, as well as loans from various institutions and private lenders.
