Wallpaper is a group show featuring artists:
Amy Wise | Bronwyn Dexter | Uma Rani Iyli | Katie Chin | Megan Reed | Marina Berlin | 

Wallpaper showcases six female artists who defy constructs via the mediums and materials they employ or the messages they convey about self and identity within our modern society. We aim to showcase female artists who we feel contribute to the collective power of women in the art world as well as celebrate female creativity reclaimed within the domestic sphere. Wallpaper celebrates female artists today using their talents not only outside the private realm, but as a means of livelihood.
