Girls at the Tin Sheds: DUPLICATED – Sister show to GIRLS AT THE TIN SHEDS

Curated by Louise Mayhew
February 26 – March 21.

Throughout the 1970s and 80s the Tin Sheds was a cultural epicentre. Open access screen-printing facilities drew students, artists and activists through its doors. They left with posters advertising marches, dances, films, community concerns and political outrage.

Two exhibitions (one at Sydney University Art Gallery and another at Verge Gallery) highlight the extraordinary number and breadth of posters created by women at the Sheds, as part of the 40th anniversary of International Women’s Year (1975). Girls at the Tin Sheds: duplicated, draws from the Sydney University Art Gallery collection, exploring the possibilities and the limitations of the archive. With works by Pam Debenham, Jan Fieldsend, Judy Lodwick, Marie McMahon, Toni Robertson and Earthworks Poster Collective, Lucifoil and Tin Sheds Posters.
