Herstory is the first time in the collection's history that art created solely by significant female artists is being shown in the gallery. The exhibition and its related forthcoming publication trace the historical and contemporary contributions these women—all who, have at one point or another, have called Manitoba home—have made on the local, national and international art scenes. Herstory highlights the themes and subjects these artists have examined in their work, from portraiture and the body to landscapes and narratives, and considers how “the feminine” and feminist notions (if any) have been approached and interpreted.
