2009 International Women's Day

International Women’s Day on Sunday 8th March 2009 will be celebrated with the Opening of ‘Nu Yishu Series IV: Nu Red’.
Imagine Gallery will again host the fourth exhibition organized through curators Laetitia Gauden and Denise Keele-bedford.

Invited to participate are Chinese, Japanese and Australian female installation and performance artists. The event will truly be international having French, Japanese, Australian, Hong-Kong and Chinese connections.
The theme of the installation, performance exhibition is based on the artists’ response to red (hong).

There are many words to describe visual, emotional and theoretical responses to red.
Think it, feel it, taste, hear it, see it. It is the color of warmth, fire, the color of energy, flames, the color of passion, burning.

“For many cultures red is both death and life – a beautiful and terrible paradox. In our modern language of metaphors, red is anger, it is fire, it is the stormy feelings of the heart, it is love, it is the god of war, and it is power.” Finlay, Victoria. Color: Travels Through the Paintbox, London, Hodder & Stoughton, 2002,p. 157

Participating artists are professional in their art practice with qualifications including Bachelor of Arts, Master of Arts and Doctor of Fine Art.
Although each artist’s concept is diverse, demonstrating individuality, a commonality through color, exceptional quality, sensitivity to theme and exemplary professionalism, links them to produce an exhibition of outstanding significance, enhancing the 2009 International Women’s Day global events.
