Women’s Art Register Bulletin | Bulletin Issue #70 OUT NOW (July 2022) by guest editors Caroline Phillips and Rachel Weinberg (Freely Downloadable)
The Women’s Art Register published its first Women’s Art Register Bulletin in April, 1988. The Bulletin initially kept the members informed of art events, news and analysis by peers. It now operates as a journal style art magazine, with regular Guest Editors and themed issues.
Bulletin #70 Out Now
After the official launch of Bulletin #70 at our Leaving Your Legacy: A Guide for Australian Artists forum on Saturday, the digital version is now available for download.
This special edition was put together by guest editors Caroline Phillips and Rachel Weinberg to coincide with our forum and extend the conversation around estate planning for artists.
The range of articles in this issue reflects the differing points of connection to the proximity of end-of-life decision-making that occurs across generations. We also see a particular gendered lens, through the voices of a number of women artists and curators, as well as projects that explore the legacy of a queer perspective.
Artists Louise Forthun, Sadie Chandler, Jan Murray, Samara Adamson-Pinczewski and Kristin Headlam discuss the concept of legacy with Rachel Weinberg, alongside advice from Gallery Director Charles Nodrum; Merren Ricketson narrates the legacy of Jennifer Phipps through the Oceania Women’s Fund; Catherine Bell investigates and draws inspiration from the archives of sculptor Daphne Mayo; and Paul Andrew outlines the development and impact of the ARI Remix Living Archives & Social Memory Project.
