Works by Lyndal Jones will be included in A Different Temporality, at Monash University Museum of Art, Caufield, for the 2011 Melbourne International Arts Festival.
A Different Temporality considers time as subject and metaphor in Australian feminist art practice from 1975 through to 1985.
A period when women artists were agitating for recognition in the broader Australian art community, this was a remarkable time of change both for women and for Australia as a whole. Politically diverse, A Different Temporality unearths the flash points of a powerfully influential period.
Encompassing time-based media such as performance, photography and film, this exhibition is a provocative series of intrusions from a time of uncommon artistic fecundity.
Curated by Dr Kyla McFarlane, the exhibition also includes works by Micky Allan, Janet Burchill and Jennifer McCamley, Bonita Ely, Sue Ford, Helen Grace, and Jenny Watson.
