Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Sailor: 100 Women, 100 Brooches, 100 Stories
Margaret Carnegie Gallery: 8 June - 22 July
Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Sailor... begins an old rhyme that little girls would chant to predict the profession of the man they would marry. Not in their wildest dreams could they have imagined that all the professions recited, from priests to lawyers, would one day be occupations for women.
The exhibition Tinker Tailor Soldier Sailorfeatures 100 stories of great Australian women who have broken professional barriers and 100 brooches made in response to these stories by 100 of Australia's most talented women jewellers. Covering arts, sciences, sports, entertainment, medicine and other disciplines as well as contemporary jewellery, Tinker Tailor Soldier Sailor has a wide appeal and generates pride for the milestones set by the women of the past and provides inspiration for the women of the future.
