Catalogue of joint exhibition held at Osage Kwun Tong, Hong Kong in 2008. Jonathan Thomson wrote, 'It is a legacy that unites the fourteen artists represented in "Women's Work". While not necessarily explicitly Feminist in intent, all of the female artists in this exhibition are working as catalysts for change. This is not to suggest that they are unique in this or are working towards the resolution of issues that are specifically gender based or are addressing the roles and relations between men and women. They have all been selected because they bring a particular female sensibility to their work without necessarily essentialising either a male or female nature. Their work addresses a broad range of issues and employs a variety of attitudes, media and forms. The female artists in this exhibition are all women working for what women want. Feminism gave them the ability to put their ideas to work.' Artist biographies are provided in the catalogue.
