The Know My Name book celebrates art by women from across Australia. With more than 150 artists profiled and texts written by more than 115 women writers, the book aims to highlight the artists and their work and shift assumptions that the histories of art are male dominated. The book is part of a series of ongoing gender equity initiatives by the National Gallery to increase the representation of all women in its artistic program, collection development and organisational structures.
