Model. Muse. Mother. Maker. I am Rose explores the woman behind the art of Norman Lindsay, through the juxtaposition of works by contemporary female artists.
More than just the wife of famed artist Norman Lindsay, this new exhibition investigates how Rose Lindsay influenced the art world of the early 20th Century and contrasts that with a discussion of her legacy in the work of contemporary female artists.
I am Rose is a unique exploration of the woman, her influence, and the feminist legacy she left.
There will also be an interactive Audience Participatory space which will allow visitors the ability to contribute their own unique perspective and understanding of Rose.
