TALK: The Cruthers collection: A view from the inside
In this public talk, John Cruthers, curatorial advisor to the Cruthers Collection of Women's Art, provides a personal reflection on the collection and on the act of private collecting.
The Cruthers Collection of Women's Art is Australia's largest specialist collection of Women's Art with over 600 works that was donated to the University of Western Australia by Sir James and Lady Sheila Cruthers in 2007.
Over 130 works are currently displayed at the current exhibition titled LOOK. LOOK AGAIN, at the Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery (20 October 2012 - 15 December 2012).
John will discuss the role of his mother Lady Sheila Cruthers, her relationships with young artists and her hopes for the Collection. He will also reveal some of his personal favourites within the Collection and the stories of their making or acquisition.
