Curated by Gemma Weston, The Likeness features works from the Cruthers Collection of Women’s Art, exploring ideas of self-determination and identity at the Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery at the University of WA from 13 June - 22 August.
Over the 50 years of collecting that form the basis of the collection, the Cruthers family developed a particular interest in self portraiture and portraiture.
Attracted to the way these genres expressed aspects of an artist's biography and identity, the family amassed close to 100 artworks that depict likenesses across a range of styles and disciplines.
Featuring familiar collection favourites and never-before seen gems and rotating collection artworks across the exhibition's run, The Likeness presents a spectrum of attitudes towards portraiture from over 100 years of Australian artistic practice.
