Ann Newmarch

30 July - 25 September 2022
Main Gallery

An active and vocal artist from the 1970s until her untimely passing earlier this year, Ann Newmarch was a leader of feminist art in Australia, but particularly in Adelaide. Bringing together a diverse range of her screenprint works from the 70s and 80s, this exhibition highlights her unique and bold voice fighting for workers’ rights, environmental concerns, and against the proliferation of violence. Woven amongst all of this we also glimpse Newmarch’s life as a mother, and how that played into her broader concerns for the future. Ever engaging, and never one to shy away from difficult or challenging topics, Ann Newmarch’s works remain striking in their clarity and vision.
