In Far North Queensland, the world of books and visual arts meet in a cross-venue exhibition event in celebration of this year’s International Women’s Day.

4TH ANNUAL WOMEN IN THE ARTS 2014

The Women in the Arts exhibition event is an annual program run by Queensland-based ARI, Knock Knock Contemporary Artists’ Initiative. This year’s program includes an exhibition of new major works from Far North Queensland contemporary artists; an exhibition of artist books; artist book workshops and a High Tea for International Women’s Day with guest speakers from literary and visual arts fields.

WOMEN IN THE ARTS: BOOKED

Curated by Rose Rigley, this exhibition featuring artist’s books and text-based works, develops the literary theme further at KickArts Contemporary Arts, Cairns. Works on display reflect the delicate qualities of paper and break away from the traditional format of the artist book, exploring both text and sculptural form within this diverse exhibition. Works from local artists accompany a selection from Australia, the UK and USA. Booked is now open for viewing in the KickArts foyer until Saturday 22 March.

"Moving beyond functionality and their role as vessels of information, the exhibition propels the book into the realms artistic adventure, conceptual endeavour and aesthetic pleasure", says Curator, Rose Rigley.

Participating Artists:
Raewyn Biggs (FNQ), Louisa Boyd (UK), Fiona Dempster (QLD), Barbara Dover (FNQ), Louisa Ennis-Thomas (FNQ), Vide Freiberg (QLD), Ania Gilmore (USA), Mandy Gunn (VIC), Kyoko Imazu (VIC), Liz Jeneid (NSW), Susan Porteous (USA), Rose Rigley (FNQ)
