24 FEB – 7 MAR 2015
Opening Night: Tuesday 24 Feb, 5-7pm

‘Taken to Task’ celebrates the work of female artists and collectives whose work deals with performative and task orientated processes, documented through video. The exhibition traces a linage of female artists using video as a means to explore aspects of duration, labour and performance; often utilising simple actions that connote complex concepts and histories.

The artists selected all share a relationship of having exhibited at Kudos Gallery and have contributed greatly to the community at UNSW Art & Design in various ways over the last two decades. The exhibition will also include the work of current students and recent graduates who are continuing on in this tradition.

The exhibition also marks the reopening of the gallery after renovations. Kudos has undergone a significant refresh of the gallery space and we would love you to come and celebrate its reopening!
