This Wild Song

Ilona Nel­son’s lat­est ex­hi­bi­tion ‘This Wild Song’, cur­rently on show at Town Hall Gallery, Hawthorn in Mel­bourne un­til 21 Oc­to­ber is a vi­brant cel­e­bra­tion of women in the arts. As part of a long-term project to pho­to­graph 100 Aus­tralian fe­male artists, Nel­son presents over 25 por­traits of women artists from di­verse back­grounds work­ing across a range of creative medi­ums, cho­sen for their unique artis­tic styles – chan­neled through the fe­male lens. Nel­son cap­tures the essence of her sub­jects by in­fus­ing vis­ual as­pects, mo­tifs and lan­guage drawn from their in­di­vid­ual arts prac­tice. The gallery’s Af­ter Dark event on Fri­day 5 Oc­to­ber from 6-8pm pairs the ex­hi­bi­tion with live en­ter­tain­ment by lo­cal mu­si­cians and of­fers vis­i­tors the chance to meet the artists and cu­ra­tors.
