The Women's Art Register contains a public access slide library of 20,000 slides, 14,000 information folders representing (as at 1994) 2,400 Australian based women artists.
The artists were selected because their work embraces not only questions of gender, but also addresses the distinctive duality between the superficial look of things and the complex web of underlying meaning, desire, fear, experience, and memory that they have located and interpreted for us. Featured artists are Jane Eisemann, Jacqui Stockdale, K.T. Prescott, Helen Wright and Megan J Walch.
