So Fine brings together ten women artists to explore the possibilities of portraiture as a contemporary art form and reinterpret events, people and places from Australia’s past.
Curators Sarah Engledow and Christine Clark developed the exhibition to enrich the contemporary narrative around Australia’s history and biography.
‘In the Portrait Gallery’s ever-growing collection, stories combine and recombine to form a national history. So Fine will reflect the rich tradition of storytelling in our country as it presents new perspectives on the past,’ Engledow says.
‘The artists contributing to the exhibition are from very different parts of Australia, and of various ages and backgrounds. Aside from gender, their common attributes are a habit of serious thinking and a meticulous approach to creation. Their combined works are intricate, refined and affecting objects that will provide unique interpretations of history and biography in this strikingly beautiful exhibition,’ says Clark.
