Greenwood, Pung to feature in ‘Women in the West’ exhibition

Authors Kerry Greenwood and Alice Pung are among the 10 featured subjects of the ‘Her Place: Women in the West’ exhibition at the MetroWest Gallery in the Melbourne suburb of Footscray, which will run from 7-31 March.

Each of the profiled women will have a short biography, video and artefacts on display.

Her Place Women’s Museum chair Mary Stuart said it is ‘a travesty that the lives and experiences of women have traditionally been underrepresented—and sometimes absent—in historical narratives, museum collections and the public sphere’. ‘Her Place: Women in the West is a rare opportunity to pay tribute to the many women who have risen above the challenges they have faced to make a mark on Melbourne’s West and beyond,’ said Stuart.

Her Place Women’s Museum will also deliver public and schools programs, including a forum on feminist literature and decolonising feminism, to accompany the exhibition. For more information, click here.
