With its tongue-in-cheek title referring to girlhood pageants and beauty competitions, Girl Parade gathers a host of Australian and International women artists and collaborations exploring female experience across the gamut of personal and social issues through portraiture, performance, costume and self-representation.
This young generation of artists working in photomedia and video explore themes and ideas following the threads of feminist discourse at its height: the commodification and use of women's bodies in advertising and propaganda, social standing and power, vocational aspirations and realities, the trials of motherhood, the complexity of sexuality and desire, and ageing as it relates to the maintenance of physical beauty and respect.
Pilar Mata Dupont & Tarryn Gill are supported by ArtsWA and the Australia Council.
