Pop up art gallery threeOclock will host A Girl’s Place exhibition, highlighting gender equality

Melbourne’s threeOclock gallery will become home to a new exhibition this Mother’s Day, dubbed A Girl’s Place. Developed and curated by artist Kim de Kretser, the pop up gallery features art and galleries that explore social and environmental themes through installation art, film and public speaking sessions. The powerful new exhibition will be based around stories of cities, through a variety of young women’s perspectives.

The exhibition will also feature Plan International Australia’s Because I Am A Girl campaign, with the aim of generating conversation into the deeper issues of gender equality, while highlighting the views of young Australian women on the issue. The campaign also looks at international issues of domestic violence, equal education opportunities, gender stereotyping and discrimination. Statistics from a survey on gender equality conducted in December last year with Australian girls aged 15-19yo will also be displayed.

A Girl’s Place exhibition will open on May 8 and will run until June 4 at the threeOclock gallery at Southgate Melbourne. The gallery will be open Tuesday – Saturday from 11am – 5pm.
