“Dusty monuments, faded masterpieces, gentlemen geniuses…”
But where are the women?! Sally Whitwell’s song cycle Pictures at an exHERbition is a creative redress, a rebalancing of the history books. Starting its life as the composer’s lockdown project, Pictures at an exHERbition is a survey in ekphrastic song of the depth and breadth of work by Australian women artists, from Grace Cossington-Smith and Thea Proctor through to Katy B Plummer.
Presented in partnership with the National Gallery of Australia, this performance features the world premiere of several newly commissioned songs in the Pictures at an exHERbition cycle. Performed by Luminescence Chamber Singers and Luminescence Children’s Choir with the composer herself at the piano.”
Pictures at an exHERbition is presented in partnership with the National Gallery of Australia, and supported by the Capital Arts Patrons Organisation.
