'Realising Mother' a new exhibition featuring emerging and established Australian women artists investigating the changing role of the mother.
The photographic image is, as always, in flux. We are experiencing a glut of imagery through social media. The photograph has chameleon qualities and can adapt itself to many forms. An excessive media-fed society impacted by globalisation and other causes distorts the image and its meanings.

This exhibition is curated by Zorica Purlija together with assistant curator Sandy Edwards (Arthere), and Kudos Co-ordinator Luke Letourneau. Zorica Purlija acknowledges the support of Arc and UNSW for this activity through the Student Community and Development Grants scheme and the Early Career Curator Award.
