An exhibition comprising visual art, video, happenings, sculpture, activism, workshops, performance art and performances by proxy to shine light on gendered worlds often hidden, or buried, from sight. Hidden Agenda will feature works from women and gender-queer artists from across Australia and around the world, with permanent visual and activist works and a different performance artist occupying the space each day. Some artists, absent due to economic and circumstantial restraints, will perform ‘by proxy’, highlighting not just their work, but their absence, and the absence of gender diversity in general from the art world.
