COLLECTIONS III: Works by Women Artists

23 October 2011–20 February 2012 Curated by Iliyana Nedkova

Collections III: Works by Women Artists the final in a series of three exhibitions curated by Iliyana Nedkova, featuring selected works from the permanent public collection of contemporary art at Perth’s Threshold artspace.

The works of over 200 Scottish and 100 international artists have been exhibited since the artspace was officially unveiled in September 2005. 85 of these artists are now represented in the Horsecross Arts’ collection, home to 115 exclusively commissioned works. The series is an endeavour to pause and reconsider our cultural heritage through selected works by Scottish artists (Collection I), international artists (Collections II) and women artists (Collections III). This finale recreates 22 site-specific installations by 18 established and emerging women artists commissioned and acquired for the collection.  All works are showing as curated loops at seven of the different ‘project rooms’ of the artspace including:
