Her / Self II: This woman
When: March 8 2019
Where: Edmonton, Canada
Her / Self II: This woman is a portrait exhibition featuring five Canadian women artists who explore the untold stories of women or themselves. Each artist has written a story about the person they used as the subject for their works. They reference women who were particularly influential in their lives and in their art practice. Each story adds to women’s history and helps to bring a better balance of our understanding of the world now and for future generations.
The Women's Art Museum of Canada provides a platform to share and preserve artworks made by women. Throughout history women’s art has been marginalized, prompting museums around the world to address this situation and to cultivate an appreciation for female visual culture. Free public access gives Canadian women a place to showcase stories and define their heritage. WAM gives voice to women across a broad spectrum of genres and media.
