CoUNTess
The Book

Due for release mid 2020

Co-authored by Elvis Richarson and Melinda Rackham CoUNTess: Women Count in the Art World - a timely look at the origins, evolution and interventions into gender asymmetry in Australian Art. Documenting the advocacy and interventions of CoUNTess Blog [2008], through to the significant gains in representation revealed by Countess Report [2019].

A heady mix of rigorous research, harrowing and humorous blog rants, hard crunched data, theoretical musings, intimate revelations and visual art works, CoUNTess will hit the shelves mid 2020.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body; supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria; and made lots of fun by a Jacky Winter Gardens Residency.
