Trying to Find Comfort in an Uncomfortable Chair
AGATHA GOTHE-SNAPE WITH THE CRUTHERS COLLECTION OF WOMEN’S ART
Leading Sydney based artist Agatha Gothe-Snape has been invited to undertake a period of research and present a site-specific response to works held in the Cruthers Collection of Women’s Art, Australia’s only public collection of women’s art, gifted to the University of Western Australia in 2007.
Trying to Find Comfort in an Uncomfortable Chair is the outcome of that research, an exhibition that features a selection of artworks from the collection, chairs belonging to the artworks’ creators and Gothe-Snape’s own response to key motifs she has identified from her research.
Curated by Charlotte Hickson, Curator, PICA and Gemma Weston, Curator, Cruthers Collection of Women’s Art (CCWA).
Agatha Gothe-Snape is represented by The Commercial, Sydney.
