Arts Mildura is excited to announce our first major exhibition for the year 2020 But Will. In this project, three exceptional artists explore contemporary feminism through their visual art practices.

Using contemporary feminism as a departure point to interrogate narratives of personal and political positions. Featuring work by three exceptional and intriguing artists:
Hannah Raisin, Sophia Hewson andBelle Bassin.

The exhibition showcases three female Australian artists whose work interrogates personal narratives of feminist politics. Arts Mildura has worked in partnership with MARS Gallery in Melbourne to bring artists Hannah Raisin, Sophia Hewson and Belle Bassin to Mildura the artists have been commissioned to create new works specifically for this exciting project. We hope the community will join us for this premiere exhibition.

But Will has been designed in response to alarming statistics of domestic violence and gender inequality within the Mallee region. Currently Mildura has the third highest rate of reported domestic violence cases in Victoria. The three artists’ work recognises and responds to the ideas that we now call contemporary or third-wave feminist theory.
