How do artists negotiate objectivity and subjectivity when representing the self?

Join art historian Emily Brink for this talk examining the connection between self-portraiture and still-life, with an emphasis on the work of artist A.M.E. Bale (1875-1955).

Emily Brink is an Assistant Professor in the History of Art at the University of Western Australia. Her research focuses on eighteenth and nineteenth-century art, with an emphasis on identity, globalization, and cross-cultural exchange.

The Artist and Her Work

25 May — 7 December 2019

Drawn from the Cruthers Collection of Women’s Art, this exhibition explores Lady Sheila Cruthers’ collection strategy of acquiring an artist’s work in addition to a self-portrait, with the two pieces often hung side by side. The Artist and Her Work utilises this unusual juxtaposition to showcase the breadth and depth of women’s art practice, replicating the dense and vibrant hanging style of the collection’s original domestic context.
