Exhibition: Del Kathryn Barton 'the women who fell to earth'

When

Tuesdays to Fridays, 10am to 6pm Saturdays, 11am to 6pm Friday 6 May to Saturday 28 May Friday 6 May from 6pm to 8pm

Barton’s detailed and vibrant paintings explore the symbolic lan­guage of femininity, interweaving references to traditional folklore and the cos­mos. Barton’s practice is grounded in self-referentiality, drawing from a euphoric and emotional inner world.

Del Kathryn Barton has won the Archibald Prize twice, in 2008 with a self-portrait with her two children, and in 2013 with a portrait of Hugo Weaving. Barton presented a major survey exhibition The Highway is a Disco at the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne (2017-18).

In 2012, a solo exhibition of Barton’s work was presented at the Heide Museum of Modern Art, Melbourne.

In 2015, Barton was awarded the AFTRS Creative Fellowship, following on from her directorial debut with The Nightingale and the Rose (2015). This film was presented in Barton’s major solo exhibition Del Kathryn Barton: The Nightingale and the Rose with the Australian Centre for the Moving Image, Melbourne (2016). This exhibition has since toured regional galleries across Australia.

Barton was awarded Screen Australia’s Gender Matters funding in 2016 and selected as a finalist in the Bowness Prize in 2017.

Barton’s work is represented in major museum collections in Australia, including the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney, the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane, the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra, the Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide and the Museum of Old and New Art, Tasmania.

Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery has represented Del Kathryn Barton since 2011.
