An exciting new (and free) exhibition filled with work by local female artists is opening this week and running for the whole of March!
“Agender,” an Australian-based collective that champions the work of female photographers, is putting on its second annual International Women’s Day show.
With work by established and up-and-coming artists including Anna Pogossova, Cybele Malinowski, Cara O’Dowd, Leila Jeffreys, Yasmin Suteja, Michele Aboud and Carlotta Moye (among several others), the exhibition will have its opening night on Friday March 8 from 6pm to 8.30pm, then run from March 9 – 31, at Sydney’s Sun Studios.
50% of proceeds from the sales will go to Sydney Women’s Fund which is a central fund that collectively fundraises and advocates to improve the lives of women and girls across Sydney. They distribute their resources (funds, expertise, personnel) to make grants to Sydney women’s charities who provide access to education and skills, employment, mentoring and social enterprise development, with a particular focus on supporting advocacy to stop violence against women and support women to rebuild lives after violence. It’s a pretty beautiful way to advance the cause of women across this city, don’t you think?
“Agender is a celebration of the great talent, wisdom and experience of female photographers. At the same time, our aim is to create new pathways for women at the start of their careers, and central to that is addressing the inequality in pay, diversity and opportunities given to women in the industry,” said Agender co-founder Cybele Malinowski.
