Artist as Archivist 
Woollahra Galleries

Artist as Archivist brings together the work of Olivia Arnold, Lisa Carrett and Millie Mitchell in an exploration of identity, kin, and home as embedded within the archive. Through diverse mediums encompassing painting, drawing, and bookmaking, and bound by the ethos of slow making, the artists scrutinise the import of heirlooms, documents, and photographs that chronicle individual and familial narratives.

In conjunction with the exhibition, the Gallery’s Reading Room showcases a curated selection of books exploring artists' interactions with archives, themes of home, displacement, and women's histories.
