Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre presents


Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre presents Onside, as part of the Women In Sport initiative which examines the complex issues relating to women and sport through an arts and cultural lens. The artists’ treatment of sensitive subjects that have not yet been significantly explored by a contemporary arts venue will make this a landmark exhibition.

Artworks referencing gender stereotyping, sexualisation of women’s bodies and notions of femininity will engage audiences to think more deeply about a range of ideas and will provide an entry point into contemporary art. The artists approach the topical and relevant themes in innovative and engaging ways with the intention of opening up a broader discussion about these issues.

Opening night performance by Anna Simic and Cristy Gilbert
