Know My Name celebrates the work of all women artists with an aim to enhance understanding of their contribution to Australia’s cultural life.

An initiative of the National Gallery of Australia, Know My Name is a national program of exhibitions, commissions, education programs, partnerships and creative collaborations that celebrates the diversity and creativity of Australian women artists throughout history and to the present day.

In 2019 the Gallery acknowledged that only 25% of its Australian art collection and 33% of its Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art collection was by women artists. A commitment was made to change this by establishing the Gallery’s first Guiding Principles for Gender Equity in collection development, programming and organisational structures.

Know My Name is also an invitation to the Australian cultural sector and to communities more broadly, to recognise and highlight the work of women across diverse creative practices.

The Know My Name initiative joins the global movement to increase the representation and visibility of women artists. It builds on the work of groups supporting gender equity across the arts including The Countess Report, Sheila Foundation and the #5WomenArtists campaign by the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C.

Celebrate women artists – see their art, hear their stories, and know their names.

Sullivan+Strumpf acknowledge the Indigenous People of this land, the traditional custodians on whose Country we work, live and learn. We pay respect to Elders, past and present, and recognise their continued connection to culture, land, waters and community.
