Barbara Zerbini: A Memorial Retrospective
29 July – 21 August 1993
This exhibition surveys the work of Barbara Zerbini, who died in 1992 aged 49 and whose achievements did not receive due recognition during her lifetime.
Zerbini, a South Australian School of Art graduate and Lecturer in Painting and Drawing from 1976 – 1985, was a painter and printmaker of exceptional technical skills.
Her refined, yet powerful images addressed issues of the moment, for example, the life of the individual in a mass society, the environment, social and political control, gender, individual fate and cultural difference.
