In Her Words is a photographic exhibition focusing on women behind and in front of the camera. Women who are in control of their own story; whether they are speaking their own truth or re-enacting the accounts of others. In this exhibition we hear from women who are bold in the telling of their flaws, uncertainties and strengths; aiming to get to the core of the female experience, rights and challenges.

Bringing together historical works from the Horsham Art Gallery collection with key figures in contemporary Australian photographic practice, the exhibition explores migration, queer culture, aboriginality, youth and childhood, the body, domesticity, place, identity and female repressions and expression. Through these images the photographers make bold statements about the societies in which they live and work.

Curated by Olivia Poloni. This project has been assisted by NETS Victoria’s Exhibitions Development Fund, supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria.
