Don’t Weigh Me Down

Beyond 50% exhibition is in response to the growing gender inequality in our global communities and explores the ways in which art can be used to influence cultural change, looking specifically at artists who seek to change the culture surrounding gender-based violence. It presents work by six international and Australian artists who identify as activists, craftivists, agitators and feminists: Panmela Castro, a performance and street activist/artist living in Brazil; Ram Devineni and Dan Goldman, Indian film makers from the United States, who have created the Priya’s Shakti comic series, Melbourne craftivist Tal Fitzpatrick and local artists Catherine Gomersall and Aldona Kmieć.
