CoUNTess Spoiling Illusions since 2008 by Melinda Rackham & Elvis Richardson

Co-authored by Melinda Rackham and Elvis Richardson, CoUNTess: Spoiling Illusions Since 2008 is 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, designed by Elliot Bryce Foulkes and Maria Smit CoUNTess will hit the shelves mid 2021.
