The National Gallery of Australia’s newest touring exhibition Know My Name: Australian Women Artists begins its two-year tour of regional Australia at Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery.

Know My Name tells a new story of Australian art with over 60 works by First Nations and Australian women artists on tour. The Know My Name exhibition provides locals and visitors to the region a chance to see the art, hear the stories and get to know the names of some of the country’s most influential women artists.

The tour showcases works from the National Gallery’s two-part exhibition held between 2020 and 2022, which was among the most comprehensive presentations of art by women assembled in Australia to date.

The touring exhibition is part of an ongoing series of gender equity initiatives by the National Gallery to increase representation of women artists who have often been omitted from published histories and public collections.

Know My Name: Australian Women Artists is a National Gallery Touring Exhibition supported by the Australian Government through Visions of Australia.
