To celebrate Tai Snaith’s exhibition and podcast series A World of One’s Own, come along and listen to two inspiring Australian creative women. Tai and Janine will evaluate the importance of women artists in a public gallery collection and shine a light on their own career trajectories and the work they have done to support and promote women artists.
Tai Snaith is an Australian artist and writer with a broad and generous practice ranging from painting and ceramics to curating, conducting conversations and broadcasting. Tai's practice employs many different forms of research and processes and presents them via widely varying outcomes and contexts. Her work is often personal, collaborative and experimental. In addition to making, a large part of Tai's practice is involved in the discourse and community surrounding art. Tai hosts a regular review of visual art on RRR FM.
Janine Burke is an Australian author, art historian, biographer and novelist. She also curates exhibitions of historical and contemporary art. Burke is Honorary Senior Fellow, Faculty of Fine Arts and Music, University of Melbourne. In 1973, Burke began to publish art reviews and essays and, the following year, co-curated "A Room of One's Own: Three Women Artists", perhaps Australia's first feminist group exhibition. In 1975, she was commissioned by Kiffy Rubbo, director of the George Paton Gallery, University of Melbourne, to curate "Australian Women Artists: 1840-1940". A national touring exhibition, it became a bestselling book in 1980. In 1975, Burke was a founding member of the Women's Art Movement in Melbourne, and the following year, she was a founding member of the feminist arts journal Lip. She was the inaugural art history lecturer at the Victorian College of the Arts from 1977-1982.
