Truth Universally Acknowledged

5 Aug–25 Sep 2005

ACCA Main Exhibition Gallery

Truth Universally Acknowledged featured the work of seven international and Australian female artists. Through film, photogravure, etching, text, painting and illustration, each explored the possibility of fiction, fantasy, personae and fact. A common thread was a particular sensibility: a questioning, a suggestion, a lingering refrain, a narrative written, rewritten and allowed to remain ambiguous. This exhibition presented the possibility for endless meaning, matter and dénouement. Fragments, mementos, observations and ambiguity, allusion, a lingering memory or the suggestion of a secret language: each provided a provocative play around ideas of the feminine.

Exhibiting Artists: Catherine Bell, Dorothy Cross, Kate Daw, Tacita Dean, Janice Kerbal, Laresa Kosloff, Rosemarie Trockel

Curator: Rebecca Coates
